Tidal power generator

Though I have worked in the Irish sea a number of times the recent trip there (June 2013) gave me a new appreciation for tidal power. I spend some time thinking about a design for a generator that can use both incoming and outgoing tides yet be compact enough that it could be installed in shallow areas, shipping lanes, or entrances to ports like Douglas at the Isle of Man.

  1. I was looking for ocean current energy and came across your Tidal power generator | David Malinowski page. Unless we stop using nuclear the world is going to be in bad trouble.
    We are amazed engineers are not looking at using more renewables like Tidal Power like CrowdEnergy.org. If we dont solve this problem today its going to get worse.
