Energy Tomorrow
TideTech One
Capabilities
TideTech One
Energy Today
Fossil fuels account for 80%
of world power generation.
Fossil fuel reserves are
expected to be depleted
by 2088 if consumption
keeps increasing at the
same rate.
Versatile turbine placement
Electrical generation for remote areas
Production Capability: Up to 3 MW
How do renewable energy sources need to be improved in the future?
Increased Efficiency
Able to withstand the forces of a category 4 hurricane.

Sensor system

Less maintenance

Safety Factor: 22
