Tidal energy

Definition(s)
Mechanical power, which may be converted to electrical power, generated by the rise and fall of ocean tides. Current technology is based on the use of one or more tidal basins, separated from the sea by dams (known as barrages), water passes through hydraulic turbines on its way between the basins and the sea.
