‘Moon Energy' Could Beat Solar And Wind To Power The World
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.
