Solution

Tidal energy: The energy possessed by rising and falling water in tides is known as tidal energy. Dams are constructed across a narrow opening to the sea to harness tidal energy and produce electricity. However, it is not a major source of energy as the rise and fall of seawater during tides is not enough to generate electricity on a large scale.

Concept: Energy from the Sea
