These two forms of energy symbolically represent two of the basic elements of nature: fire and water. Geothermal energy is the surface manifestation of Earth’s internal heat. It is harnessed through the direct use of hot water or the production of electricity via steam turbines. The energy of the waves, currents and tides is instead generated respectively by wind on the sea’s surface, by the temperature and saline gradients of the seas and by the gravitational action of the Earth-Sun-Moon.

The systems to recover energy are ingenious and harness all movements of the water masses.
