There’s an enormous dormant potential of energy in the oceans: wave and tidal power can generate clean and renewable energy worldwide. Find out how a tidal plant works

The tidal energy matrix is a form of energy production that comes from the flow of the oceans, as a result of the natural movement of waves and tides. Due to the translation and rotation movements and the constant removal and approach of the Sun and the Moon, the volume of water in liquid state over the earthly surface moves constantly. This movement can be converted into energy, and new technologies to make this conversion more efficient are in development. There are few places using tidal and wave energy already, but there is great potential to adopt it.

Here is how this technology works.
