Tidal Energy

Since at least 1958, man has been harnessing the power of tides to produce electricity.  But harnessing tide power has been ongoing since prehistoric times.

Overviews

  • WorldEnergy.org - Gives one of the best reports on current and planned tide power projects around the world, beginning as early as 1958.
  • Review by GCK Technology (PDF) - Good report on history of tide power, including prehistoric and middle ages tide wheels (under London Bridge 1580)
  • Martin Berger Reviews Tidal Energy Technology - Speaking at the New Energy Conference in Portland, Sept. 26, 2004, Berger presents an overview of the present state of the technology, including that of his company.

How It Works

Tidal Lagoons

Applications / Companies

  • China Endorses 300 MW Ocean Energy Project - ocean waters off the coast of China are on their way to gaining a large-scale tidal lagoon energy project. (RenewableEnergyAccess; Nov. 2, 2004)
  • World's Largest Tidal Power Plant in S. Korea - The plant, scheduled for construction in November, will produce enough electricity for the local population of 500,000. (Alt-Eng-News; Oct. 5, 2004)
  • Tidal flow to power New York City - Verdant Power planning to install turbines in the East River.  $4.5-million project to build farm of tide-powered turbines.  Starting at 6 turbines generating a total of 200kw; they plan to implement 200 - 300 turbines. (Nature; Aug. 13, 2004) (Verdant)
  • Sea change for tidal power - The TidEl system uses floating turbines that are anchored to the seabed by chains. The underwater windmills drift back and forth with the tide, so they point in the best direction to get power from the spinning blades. (Nature; Mar. 24, 2004)
  • Tidal power could make island energy exporter - Guernsey Electricity invests 250,000.  "The potential tidal-flow power between here and Jersey is around 200MW." (Mar. 2004)

Issues

  • Tidal Power Delayed for Whale - Annapolis Tidal Generating Station temporarily shuts down as young humpback whale explores the River off of the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. (Solar Access; Aug. 26, 2004)

Other Instances of Tidal Power

  • Devon England (BBC)
  • Cornwall England (BBC)
  • France
  • Nova Scotia Canada (1984)
  • Barents Sea, Russia (1968)
  • China - (1958)
    Article mentions all the above installations as well as those in Australia, Argentina, Mexico, India, Korea.

Backing

  • UK gets 50 Million boost to wave and tidal energy - biggest award ever to harness sea power for UK. (GNN.gov.uk; Aug. 2, 2004) (also)

Skeptics

  • Why Tidal Energy is Unfeasible - William A. Rhodes explains the dynamics of such a system that must both handle infrequent fluctuations as well as hurricanes.

Counter Arguments

  • Warning over tidal energy impact - Wave energy projects could adversely affect marine life and tidal environments.  (BBC; Aug. 20, 2004)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
