Tidal power – U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

03/09/23
The gravitational pull of the moon and sun along with the rotation of the earth create tides in the oceans. In some places, tides cause water levels near the shore to rise and fall up…

Why don’t we use tidal power more?

04/12/22
Tidal power leverages the rise and fall of oceanic tides to capture potential or kinetic energy and convert it into other energy forms, often electricity. There are two methods of harnessing tidal power. One method…
