Tidal energy may be cost
effective in twenty countries
Traditional hydropower supplies 3.500 TWh/year.
8 Tidal energy supplies 1 TWh/year.
8Both have the same theoretical potential but the designs based upon hydropower solutions are too expensive for the specific tidal conditions, i.e. a very low water head with very huge discharges.
8 A specific tidal solution, the Tidal Gardens appears cost effective, not only in few sites of high tidal range, but in 20 countries with average tidal range of 3 to 6 m.
