This new design from TidalStream for tidal power turbines claims to output up to 10MW per 6 turbine platform, substantially more than other designs. Plus, such power is generated completely silently and is not visible from the shore, which should keep NIMBYs happy. Let’s hope it can scale to commercial levels.
