tidal lagoon power

Definition

Tidal pools are independent enclosing barrages built on high level tidal estuary land that trap the high water and release it to generate power, single pool, around 3.3W/m2. Two lagoons operating at different time intervals can guarantee continuous power output, around 4.5W/m2. Enhanced pumped storage tidal series of lagoons raises the water level higher than the high tide, and uses intermittent renewables for pumping, around 7.5W/m2. i.e. 10 × 10 km2 delivers 750MW constant output 24/7. These independent barrages do not block the flow of the river and are a viable alternative to the Severn Barrage. (DBpedia)
