Instream tidal power has the potential to bring predictability to large-scale renewable electricity generation due to the regularity of tidal cycles. Renewable electricity is a cornerstone of greenhouse gas emission reduction and sustainable development. In the case of the Bay of Fundy, tidal energy would also displace coal-fired thermal combustion as a source of electricity to the Nova Scotia grid and therefore reduce emissions of NOx, SOx and heavy metals such as mercury.
