Harnessing the Power of the Tides

Harnessing the Power of the Tides

Tidal range is the most mature tidal technology. Essentially it uses modified hydropower turbines and significant civil engineering works to impound a body of water and generate power using the head difference created as the tide ebbs and floods. France led the way with tidal range development back in the 1960s and La Rance (near Saint-Malo in Brittany) was the world’s first project of this kind. Until 2011, the 240-MW La Rance project was the largest tidal power plant in the world. Some 45 years later, the original turbines are still in use and the plant is one of the cheapest forms of power generation on the EDF Energy network. Since then, tidal range power development has progressed somewhat erratically. The U.K. has studied many sites, in particular the Severn Estuary (see Figure 1). Parsons Brinckerhoff led the consulting consortium undertaking the Severn Tidal Power ...
