Here’s the need-to-know stuff about the energy source, tidal power!
As the Moon orbits the Earth, its gravity exerts a pulling force on the Earth. Tides are the rising and falling of the world’s oceans caused by this pulling force.
Where can you find tidal power?
Tidal energy can be harnessed wherever there is a strong tidal current. The best locations in the UK are in Scotland and the Severn Estuary. But there are only a few commercial tidal energy plants around the world.
