There’s no doubt that tidal power is severely lagging behind other forms of renewable energy like wind and solar power. However, as two-thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, we’d be crazy not to try and harness energy from water that’s continuously in motion. Given the high costs of creating new technology and the fact that there is yet to be an agreed upon design that works, the tidal energy industry is yet to take off. Germany based company, REAC Energy GmbH wants to change that. They have developed the StreamCube, a scalable, cube-shaped water wheel that might be…
