Major tidal power pros and cons

Though the development of the tidal power is at the nascent stage, it is estimated to have a vast potential globally. It is generated from converting energy from the force tides into power. Tidal energy production is more predictable compared to wind energy and solar power. Despite this, tidal power is still not exploited widely even as the world's first large-scale tidal power plant became operational in 1966. However, increase focus on generating power from renewable sources is expected to accelerate the development of new methods to exploit the tidal energy.
