What is the source energy of tidal power?

    There are 3 different energy sources for tidal power. There is wave energy which uses the kinetic energy of the moving waves in the ocean. This energy is used to power a turbine. The 2nd is tidal energy. Tidal energy works similar to a dam. When tides comes into the shore, they can be trapped in reservoirs behind dams. Then the water is later released at low tide. The final is ocean thermal energy. There is temperature difference in the ocean; the surface waters are much warmer than the cooler deeper waters. Power plants can be built that use this difference in temperature to make energy. However, a difference of at least 38 degrees Fahrenheit is needed.
