    Tidal energy is a form of hydropower that converts the energy of the tides into electricity or other useful forms of power and is entirely predictable and renewable. The tide is created by the gravitational effect of the sun and the moon on the earth causing cyclical movement of the seas. There are two forms that can […]

    Renewable energy can be generated by harnessing the power from the tides, which can be predicted hundreds of years in advance. But the predicted energy gains from certain schemes have been overestimated, according to a team of researchers in Liverpool. Tidal range power generation is one way of extracting tidal energy. A structure holds back […]

    The UK National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Liverpool recently published a study, according to which potential energy gains from tidal power by the use of pumping process are “too optimistic”. Tidal energy is still in its emerging phase, so tidal range structures (barrages, lagoons, and offshore tidal impoundments) require large financial resources. Investment into the […]
