It is not like wind energy. The big problem with wind energy is that when the wind stops blowing the base supply must be got back into but with the tide constantly coming and going, the turbines keep turning. The idea would be to install entire farms of these turbines under water. They are environmentally friendly and they do not make any noise. It looks like a great idea and is an Irish development by a firm in Dundalk.
