TIDAL ENERGY

During the 20th century, engineers developed ways to use tidal movement to generate electricity in areas where there is a significant tidal range—the difference in area between high tide and low tide. All methods use special generators to convert tidal energy into electricity.

Tidal energy production is still in its infancy. The amount of power produced so far has been small. There are very few commercial-sized tidal power plants operating in the world. The first was located in La Rance, France.Tidal energy production is still in its infancy. The amount of power produced so far has been small.

GeneratorsThere are currently three different ways to get tidal energy: tidal streams, barrages, and tidal lagoons.

Is produced by the surge of ocean waters during the rise and fall of tides. Tidal energy is a renewable source of energy.
