  • Renewable Energy (2)
    • Pumped Storage
      • Advanatges
        • Quick release on demand
    • Tidal Barrages
      • Advantages
        • No pollution
        • Tides happen every day (reliable)
        • Creates large amount of power
      • Disadvantages
        • Tide height varies over the year
