Reel Tide Energy

Extract energy from tides by using a drag pod.

Pitch

Patented concept to extract energy from the flow of tides by deploying a ‘drag pod’ in the flow over a distance that is attached to a line that runs over a pulley wheel or draws line out from reels. The torque generated and the movement of the wheel/reel linked to a generator produces electricity on the ebb and flow tides.
