  • Tidal power - A different perspective

    Kepler Energy is taking a different approach to tidal power, applying a design that can be used in benign sea conditions in a location closer to end-demand and which could generate utility-scale quantities of power, as Peter Dixon explains.The physical environment of tidal turbines is clearly very different to that of wind turbines, not least because water is a lot denser than air! However, ...
