Tidal and Wave Energy

New technology to heat homes through river and sea water

Marine energy is one of the cleanest types of alternative energies, but it is not produced using fresh water. Marine energy is dependent on tidal waves for generating electricity. Tidal waves are not as reliable as water of the seas and rivers. Therefore, scientists have been looking for a way to produce energy from sea, river and lake water without causing pollution.

Taming Ocean to resolve the global energy problems

The dynamic equation between sun, earth, wind and water result in the formation of waves, which are unbound sources of energy that come crashing onto the shore. The longer the wind pushes the wave, the stronger it is, in fact the wave will be strong enough to generate enough energy to solve at least 10% of the Earth’s energy crisis.

Harnessing the power of waves to generate energy

Wave power is a form of wind power as waves emanate at the center of the sea when low-pressure zones cause ripples.  These ripples are fanned by the wind and are carried up to the shore where they break after covering a distance of thousands of miles. The rise and fall of the wave consist of collecting wind energy, which can be harvested by using moving elements.  Unlike hydro power, the water itself is not the catalyst here; it is just the agent that harnesses energy.

Innovative ideas to harvest tidal energy

With the depletion of fossil fuels and ever-growing demand of energy, new sources of renewable energy are needed to be tapped. Tidal energy is one such option. Tidal energy converts energy from tides, i.e. continuous flow of water. Tidal energy was tapped 100s of years ago in waterwheel techniques. In mid and late twentieth century, many countries such as France, China and Canada tried to capture tidal energy. However, high cost- both environmental, as well as financial discouraged their large-scale use.
