High yields and low costs from tidal currents are associated with - shallow, in-shore, high intensity sites located close to population. Such resources are found at - channels, headlands and straits with fast tides (velocity 2m/s or more) fast rivers (velocity 1m/s or more) shallowing and narrowing waterways accelerate flows regions with high tidal range and strong oceanic resonances. New high efficiency ducted cross-flow turbines - allow lower intensity resources to be harvested which are far more widely spread (near coastal populations).
