Seaside energy proposal
Tidal, solar and wind power.
Where Lorne is located
Renewable energy sources
Tidal power is a kind of hydro power that converts the energy of tides into power like electricity. There are two tidal generating methods: the tidal stream generator and the tidal barrage.
Wave power holds the most promise of all, since wave power can be captured anywhere on the ocean. We think that the tidal stream generator is the most efficient way to collect energy as its seas are very violent.
And geothermal power if there are any complaints about any of our renewable energy sources that you are not happy with
The two types of tidal generating methods we could use for Lorne
Like we typed,the two tidal generating methods are the tidal stream generator and the tidal barrage.
The tidal stream generator uses the kinetic energy of the water to push the turbines like the way a wind turbine uses the wind to power the turbines.
The tidal barrage collects water from high tides until there is enough potential energy to generate power. Then, during low tides, they release the turbines to force the water out. We chose tidal power because it is the most predictable of all renewable energy sources like solar and wind energy.
