A study by tidal power company Atlantis has concluded that 2GW of tidal energy could be harnessed if a barrier were built between the tip of Normandy's Cotentin peninsula and the British Channel Island of Alderney. The site, estimated to have the strongest tides in Europe, could begin generating 1GW ...

Wind, wave, water and tidal power cascade over us. There is wood in our forests. There are hot rocks beneath Cornwall and Durham, gas under Lancashire and enough coal under the North Sea to last centuries. We could easily buy sufficient uranium to keep us going indefinitely. And if we were to crack ...

Meanwhile, advocates of tidal power maintain it delivers significant advantages over other forms of ...
In the case of tidal power, the fly in the ointment is that the generating equipment must be fabricated, transported to site, maintained, decommissioned, and eventually transported home for disposal or recycled. All of this requires energy, presumably from non-renewable sources. Whether it's worth it or not ...
But just like the energy sources they seek to replace, such as carbon-spewing oil and coal, these new sources of green energy will inevitably cause some environmental damage.

To non-engineers, steel and lightweight may not go together, but Rainey is comparing his proposal to structures largely made ...
COMPARED with solar and wind energy, which are booming, tidal power is an also-ran in the clean-energy stakes. But if you did want to build a tidal power station, there are few better sites than the estuary of the River Severn, in Britain. Its tidal range, the difference in depth between high and low tides, ...
"With tidal energy, we can tell a utility that in two years, in five years, in five minutes, what energy we can produce through our unit and that level of predictability, which they don't get from wind, which they don't get from solar, makes tidal power very important," he said. The provincial energy department said ...
