Energy from rivers and seas

Energy extracted from the marine environment is, on the one hand, the most capital intensive form of energy, but, on the other, offers the longest-term energy certainty coupled with the highest energy density.

Energy can be derived from water according to four basic principles: first, hydroelectricity from the damming of rivers; second, from hydrodynamics or the movement of water by virtue of tidal rise and fall, tidal currents and waves; third, the dynamics of thermal difference; and fourth, the extraction of hydrogen from water via electrolysis. This chapter focuses on the first and second technologies.
