How much energy is in one wave?

    There are a lot of factors to consider in this question, such as how fast the wave is moving, how wide the wave is, how tall the wave is, and how long does the wave hold its form before it breaks. Since each wave is different, of course this question is impossible to answer in a broad fashion. A general rule though, the wider, taller, and faster moving a wave is, the higher energy it holds. As far as tidal energy is concerned though, it is the currents under the wave itself that hold the energy, as they are what would be turning the turbine in order to create energy.
