Tidal Graphic

The United States Department of Energy issued a press release in January, 2012 reported that water power, including conventional hydro-power and wave, tidal, and other water power resources, can potentially provide 15% of U.S. electricity needs by 2030.

Here is the link to the DOE statement:

There are only three operating tidal power plants in the world at present.

Here is the link to Canada‘s tidal power plant which has been in operation since 1985.

    • Hi Ann,

      Thanks so much for the offer. Writing a tidal article is definitely on my list of things to do. Presently collecting information to write a post. This process may take another month before I am satisfied enough to write on the topic.

      Best Regards, JBS
