Expert Answer:

The waves are generated by strong winds blowing across the sea.
 
The kinetic energy possessed by huge waves near the sea-shore can be trapped by a dam to generate electricity. 
 
This is known as wave energy.
 
Wave energy would be an efficient source of energy only where waves are very strong.
