    “Tidal power generation has the same working theory as hydropower. You have to build dams aside lochs or river mouths where the tide emerges and place hydroelectric generating sets in the dams so that they can generate power due to the difference of tides level. From the angle of energy, hydroelectric generating sets translate tide […]

    Even though the tidal power technology gives hope, it is still unproven because of many challenges. In a recently released new marine renewable energy strategy, the NDP government states that the tidal power potential exists but that it requires ambitious and costly measures to make use of it. According to the strategy, the commercial-scale production […]

    Dynamic Tidal Power is based on the principle that tides don’t operate strictly horizontally but also flow in parallel to the shore as well, which allows a type of barrage to be built perpendicular to the shore. Dynamic Tidal Power (DTP) is a way to use the natural tides for generating sustainable energy. A dam-like structure […]
