Wave energy is renewable, and it has green environmental protection and rich energy storage. It has attracted more and more attention of many countries. At the same time, it is also included in the ranks of new energy. In this paper, the definition, causes, and characteristics of wave energy are summarized and classified, and the working principles and characteristics of various devices are described. Based on the above summary, the problems of wave energy developers are analyzed, and development of wave energy generation devices in the world are prospected.
