What are limitations of tidal & wave energy?
The tidal energy is not likely to be a potential source of energy in future due to the following limitations:
1-Less availability of suitable sites for building tidal barrages around the world.
2-The rise and fall of sea water during high and low tides is not enough to generate electricity on a large scale.
3--Start up costs to build a tidal energy plant is high.
Limitations of wave energy:
1-Since waves are erratic, the amount of energy a wave generator can produce is unpredictable and, therefore, cannot be used as a sole reliable energy source.
2-High initial capital costs.
3-Equipment should be strong to stand against rough weather.
4-It Can harm the marine ecosystem.
there are many disadvantage in the production of tidal energy-
1 there are very few sites in the world which are suitable for building tidal dams.
2 the rise and fall of sea water is not enough to generate electricity on a large scale.
3 mass relocatioon of people would take place which will create other problems.
