Tidal Power Plants - The Source of Ecologically Clean Energy

by Lev B. Bernshtein, Moscow Inst of Hydro Projects, Russia,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Ocean Energy Recovery


This paper outlines the development of tidal energy within the Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.). It describes several working and proposed tidal power plants developed in the U.S.S.R. with a discussion of recent advances pertaining to optimizing the efficiency of plant construction and utilization. International contributions to these advances are discussed as well as those originating in the Soviet Union. With the recent advances in plant construction and the attractiveness of an environmentally clean source of energy, tidal power should prove a very attractive alternative energy source in key areas around the world and could assist greatly in alleviating the world's energy problems.
