Creator Thomson, Jim
Subject water currents water power renewable energy sources turbines water
Description The currents that result from the daily rise and fall of the tides are a potential source of clean, renewable energy for coastal communities. Tidal In-Stream Energy Conversion, or TISEC, uses submerged turbines, with no surface expression and minimal effects on the marine environment.
