I would like information on tidal energy.

Information on tidal energy can be found in these sources:

Book: Tidal Energy, 1982 by R.H. Charlier
Journals: IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, Volume 8, September 1993 page 552

Chemical and Engineering News, Volume 69, June 17, 1991 page 42
Scientific American, Volume 251 December 1984, page 70

The latter article discusses the environmental impact of a proposed Canadian project on the shoreline of Maine. Even such environmentally benign technologies as tidal energy can have serious environmental impacts.
