Abstract

Tidal energy is a clean and reliable way to obtain energy from a renewable resource. While our current systems in place work to meet our needs, it is important to pursue other avenues of energy that have a less harmful impact on our environment and long-term capabilities. Tidal energy is a type of hydroelectric power that harnesses the potential or kinetic energy from the surrounding waves. Currently, the use of tidal energy is spreading rapidly across the globe as an amazing energy resource. Most notably, France and South Korea have taken steps to begin the implementation of this resource as a step into the future of renewable energy. Although more research is necessary, this resource will pose an environmental impact equal to or less than that of other renewable energy sources. Tidal energy is a powerful method of harnessing natural energy in a clean and responsible way.
