Tocardo's tidal energy turbines enable clients to achieve a reliable production of renewable energy by drawing power from tidal patterns.

Renewables have grown rapidly in recent year, but in many cases intermittency of supply remains an issue. Tidal energy offers a solution to this by providing a dependable power source that can support and enhance existing green energy solutions. Tocardo's tidal turbine Solution makes use of the tides and river streams to propel blades and offer customers local, predictable and balanced power generation. With the worldwide tidal market potential being 500 GW, tidal power innovations such as this Solution hold huge environmental and economic potential.
