Question

State true or false:

A tidal energy dam can harvest more energy on a larger scale than a hydropower plant.


A
True
loader
B
False
loader

Solution

The correct option is B False
No, a tidal power plant cannot yield more energy than a hydropower plant. A dam has gates that can control the amount and kinetic energy of the water falling on to the turbines. Whereas, the tides in the ocean are difficult to be controlled or managed. This results in a lesser energy yield from the tides than from the water stored in a reservoir.
