Tidal in-stream energy production and river in-stream energy production systems have several similarities and a few key differences. The main similarity is of course that they both use water to generate energy. In addition to that, neither of these systems require dams to be built in order to harness the power of the water. This is an incredibly positive aspect of both, as it avoids the adverse environmental effects caused by dams, and should dramatically reduce the costs associated with implementation.

With each passing year, more countries are starting to use wind power as an alternative energy source. Here are the top five countries for wind turbines.
China is one of the fastest developing countries in the world. Wind power will be necessary to help supply all of the countryâ€™s energy demands. Chinaâ€™s traditional energy sources may not be able to provide for everyone.
The United States is a good market for the use of (more…)
Turning to the ocean in search of ways to generate renewable energy could be an essential part of any effort. In addition to resources and technology that can allow the power of the waves and tides to be harnessed and converted into cheap, clean and renewable energy, off-shore wind-farms and other installations that make use of more ideal conditions and environments may be playing a bigger role in powering our future than you would have expected. Learning more about such resources and technologies, and the key role they will play in addressing the energy (more…)
Harnessing the power of the waves and tides can produce a great deal of electrical power, without the harmful emissions, pollution and other limitations that are associated with more conventional energy sources. Renewable and sustainable power generation promises to be an essential effort in terms of securing a greener and brighter future. Investing in the technology, resources and opportunities that will make clean-energy alternatives a more viable and widely used option may not be a concern that can be simply left to chance.
