Plans are being considered to turn the famous Dutch dikes into tidal power generators. Although originally built to protect the people and land of the Netherlands, now a committee of various government representatives has issued a recent report including some suggestions to revise the operation of the dikes to create a more pleasant and more natural land behind the dikes, and to provide a source of power. Openings in the series of dikes would provide ideal locations for tidal power plants.

Sounds good especially if this is pushed through. This is what the world needs, energy generation from renewable sources. Projects of this nature aren't that common. Which makes me wonder if tidal power generation really has what it takes to provide enough power so that it's worth the investment. Maybe it's not as easy and more expensive compared to solar and/or wind?
