First Commercial Tidal Power Plant in Asia to Provide Area with Green Energy

Asia’s first utility scale tidal power plant is in the works off the coast of India. As of now the plant will only have a 50MW generating capacity but, in time, may ultimately reach over 200MW. Atlantis Resources, the London-based group that developed the world’s largest tidal turbine in Scotland, is constructing the project in the Gulf of Kutch. A survey recently performed by the company shows that the gulf has roughly…

Green Power Islands to Generate and Store Clean Energy

Gottlieb Paludan, a Danish architectural firm, has come up with a revolutionary plan to store green energy which may solve the world energy crisis. The firm has proposed to take the world’s uninhabited islands and turn them into Green Power Islands, in which power would be generated on land through wind or solar — depending upon the climate — and the surrounding water would be used to store the power using pumped hydro. Pumped hydro is an efficient and feasible way…
