Alternative Green Energy Source From Tidal Power: Renewable Electricity Generation by Turbines On The Seabed

A newly developed source of clean energy is soon to be tested on the seabed of the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia, Canada. This new alternative renewable electricity resource will generate power from the tides that, in the Bay of Fundy, are the highest in the world. Tidal Energy Generator The generator to be installed consists of a large turbine mounted on a steel base. Designed and manufactured by an Irish company, OpenHydro, one of a number corporations developing tidal technology, the 10-metre turbine will be capable of generating 1 megawatt (MW). The project will test the operation of the …

Wind Power As a Green Energy Source: Today’s Energy: Clean Environmentally Friendly Wind Generators

For human civilisation to continue, there is a desperate search for alternate, renewable energy sources. Reliance on fossil fuels and natural gas has become risky, and although nuclear power is a viable source of energy, there are no adequate disposal techniques. Although these problems are only just now entering the minds of the masses through media coverage, scientists have been searching for alternate sources of energy for some time. History Of Wind Power 1000 BC -1300 AD The first wind powered machine was a sailboat and was believed to be used as early as 1000 BC. The first windmills of …
