The present paper is a general review of the main primary ocean energy sources which could be considered as future alternative sources of energy for some of the African countries. of these sources, it is widely recognised that ocean thermal energy conversion shows the most promise for the early development of commercial quantities of power among the ocean technologies. Wave energy may be considered as of second importance followed by ocean currents. As far as tidal energy is concerned, its technical viability already has been proved in France and USSR.
