Tidal/Hydro/Water Energy


Water Energy and Power can come from a variety of sources. Hydropower and Tidal Power are the most common sources of water energy. Moving water has kinetic energy that we can harness to produce power or even store it for later. Read about the different uses of water energy.

What is Tidal/Hydro/Water Energy?

Whether you’re looking at hydropower in the form of a dam on river, or referring to the renewable energy that ocean tides produce with tidal generators, the source of moving water can be harnessed to give us a clean power source. Water power has been used since ancient times has it was used for irrigation along with simple mechanical devices including watermills that used this mechancial energy to run their mills for grinding flour to gristmills. Either falling water's energy is harnessed or the energy is taken from the moving water, such as a running river, to provide the hydropower that is converted to other forms of energy that can be used.

In Space, Use of Alternative Energy Sources Is Very Useful

Alternative Energy

Is Alternative Energy is the same as Renewable Energy? This may change depending on who you talk to? In our opinion, we decided to say that alternative energy is another type of energy that is not fossil fuel and burns clean, but may not be a renewable source. This means that we may not have unlimited fuel for the future.

Renewable Energy

So what is renewable energy anyway? Renewable Energy is an energy source that can never run out or nearly never run out. Unlike some of the fossil fuels that we will eventually mine out of the Earth, Renewable energy sources, such as Solar Energy or Wind Energy, can always be harnessed as long as we still have sunlight and wind.

Fossil Fuel Burning Power Plant From A Far

Fossil Fuels

Fossil Fuels come in many forms including some of the popular fuel sources such as coal, natural gas, and petroleum (crude oil). Most of the power from the United States and most of the world is based on Fossil Fuels. It is a cheap fuel compared to renewable and alternative energy sources, but with new technologies, we are moving towards cleaner and healthier forms of energy and power.
