A joint effort from regulatory, technology, funding and infrastructure stakeholders globally can turn the tide in favor of tidal energy, according to Frost & Sullivan.Credit: Lockheed MartinThe growing emphasis on renewable and carbon neutral energy generation has thrust tidal energy into the spotlight. Tidal energy being more reliable than wave energy has a few operational plants with substantial capacity across the globe. New, experimental concepts such as dynamic tidal power, which enable production even in low-tide regions, possess the potential to disrupt existing technologies and make tidal power a key energy resource.
