Tidal Energy: Current Status and Future Outlook

Tidal Energy: Current Status and Future Outlook

Tidal energy being more reliable than wave energy has a few operational plants with substantial capacity across the globe

Apart from tidal energy converters, other important technical aspects of the tidal energy plant is the foundation, grid connectivity and other supportive infrastructure

Europe is the front runner in the development and adoption of tidal energy technologies, whereas the United States is one of the top innovators in the same.

A region wise analysis reveals that China and South Korea are both very active in the space of tidal energy.

An upcoming untested method of tidal power generation (known as dynamic tidal power) seems to have created interest across the world and has great potential if successful.
