    Many many thanks for selecting my idea “Wave Energy: Efficient Conversion of The Big Waves”. Worldwide available the unlimited source of natural energy ocean/river waves could be the perfect alternative to fossil fuels. I believe that considering the worldwide energy crisis/politics/war, fossil pollution, and climate change we should try our best to use the energy of big waves. This selection will make it easy to go for the implementation. Big Thanks.
