The tide is created by gravitational tugs from the moon and the sun. They are a powerful force along the shore.
Tidal power is a form of hydropower that converts the energy of tides into electricity. This is one of the technology used as a natural energy resources like solar and wind power.
<Tidal power plant has been made in many countries.>
Tidal power uses difference of tidal range.
Occur that tidal range changes
Open a dam and water flow
Fuel is not required,
Project the output exactly.
Cost performance is bad.
Difficult to establish.
In Japan, there is a large tidal range as the Tsugaru,Kanmon and Naruto Strait. But there is no better place to establish a large scale tidal power plant.
Tidal power is not expanded in Japan yet.
It is a venture company established in MAY 2007 and located in Hyogo. This company has been conducting research and development of new energy.
NT-030 MAGURO TURBINE
Kitakyusyu started to develop tidal power plant with a company or university in this year.
The speed of the tide is fast : Max 4.8m/s
This research has not commercialized yet. And it is difficult to use widely in Japan.
If tidal power is available widely in Japan. We can reduce the emission of CO2.
