There are several alternatives to obtain marine energy: waves, tides, currents, gradients of temperature and gradients of salinity. All of them have been studied extensively, however their implementation is closely related to the particular conditions of the local sea. This paper presents preliminary results related with the kind of the instrumentation required to monitor the behavior of the variables associated with marine energy and the best available technologies to take advantage of the marine power in the Colombian seas.
