Seawater desalination is not very energy efficient. To turn saltwater into freshwater, it's pushed through a very thin polyamide membrane. While the water molecules pass through with no trouble, salt molecules do not.. This process is known as reverse osmosis. So 1st point is energy inefficiency

And also we can say it is expensive. Usually producing water through ocean desalination costs three or more times what it costs to produce water from traditional supplies.
