The night sky can help the world with more than just directions. Tidal energy occurs when the sun and moon's gravitational forces create a tide which then produces electricity and other forms of power. Creating tidal energy can be done in two ways, converting the power of the horizontal movement of water or producing energy from the change in water levels. Included in this data set are tidal barrages and lagoons and tidal stream turbines for surface and deep water use.
