Tidal energy's potential in the Philippines.
« on: June 10, 2007, 03:12:36 AM »
Quote wikipedia :

Tidal Power, sometimes called tidal energy, is energy derived by exploiting the rise and fall in sea levels due to the tides. There are two types of energy systems that can be used to extract energy: kinetic energy, the moving water of rivers, tides as face ocean currents; and potential energy from the difference in height (or head) between high and low tides. The former method - generating energy from tidal currents uses turbines in a similar way to underwater windmills - is gaining in popularity because of the lower ecological impact compared to potential systems that are similar to dams sometimes called barrages or tidal fences. Many coastal sites worldwide are being examined for the suitability to produce tidal (kinetic) energy. Sites that are suitable exhibit high water speeds which typically occur in channels such as the entrances to bays, rivers of between islands where water currents are concentrated.

I think it would be very suitable for the philippines, given our vast water areas.

Out of 90.5 million Filipinos, only 3 million are registered as a taxpayer. This is only 3.31%.. Widen tax collection!

Thereis a possibility to hav tidal power, Specially to those places High Tide is often set. Tidal power, along with Hydroelectric, coal,and geothermal power, can lessen oil power consumption and increase power supply without foreign oil.

Navotas can be one of the examples of setting a tidal power plant-to power Camanava.

We could use the design where it utilizes a bay-like body of water, and has a gate which releases water through the bottom, spinning the turbines below.

do u think a certain flood control project may also convert into a tidal power plant? Specially in Camanava Area, where High tide is often rising

I'm not trying to insult anybody here. But a project like this can only be initiated by a foreigner or foreign company if it is to work in the Philippines. Those that we have in DST are static thinkers. Safe players. It's sad, but how many patents and research do you see being let out by that beurocracy ?

Perhaps if it had gotten more exposure they would recognize it as an extremely potential source of energy for the Philippines. In the media and textbooks and whatnot you only hear about the Philippines' coal, geothermal and hydroelectric resources, emphasis on hydroelectric.

The largest tidal power system
by David Allen on Wednesday, March 19th, 2008


A British company has won the contract to build the world largest tidal power scheme in south Korea, costing around 500 million the system will make use of the fast flowing tides that will run through the filed of three hundred 60ft tall underwater turbines, which have been fixed to the sea bed.

tidal energy

These turbines are simply dropped into place on the sea bed, which will take them well away from any shipping that use the area. The British company involved is Lunar Energy, they have partnered with the Korean company Midland Power Company. Once this project is completed sometime around 2015, there will be enough power produced to power up around 200,000 homes.
