Tidal energy may become one of the best sources of renewable energy.

Most people are already quite familiar with solar energy and wind energy, but not a lot of people are aware that the moon could also be used to gather renewable energy by harnessing tidal energy.

Tidal energy, a form of hydropower that converts the energy of tides into usable power or electricity, is not as widely used as solar and wind energy, but has great potential to be a source of renewable energy.

The gravity of the moon causes whole oceans to move – which is why the seas experience low tides and high tides. The moon's gravity helps in moving a large amount of water two times a day and harnessing the energy from that movement can provide a large amount of energy.
