Tides are the periodical rise and fall of sea water level. During high tide, the level of water increases with reference to the low tide level. The potential energy is higher during the high tide than the low tide. The difference in potential energy during high tide and that during low tide is the tidal energy. India has good potential for tidal power generation in the States of Gujrat and some parts of Sundarbans in West Bengal. The country’s first Tidal Power Plant has been proposed to be set up in Durgaduani Creek of Sundarbans. The 3.6 MW project will cost Rs. 40 crores and likely to be funded by the Central Government and the State Government. The detailed project report has been prepared. The execution work of the project will start soon.
