HARNESSING THE TIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 19 June 1914

HARNESSING THE TIDES. According to Mr. C. A. Battiscombe, in tho next century steam pow er and electricity for driving trains will be altogether superseded. .. lie says that the day is not far off when cities will be lighted, meals cook ed, and locomotives driven by tidal power. This idea does not seem in any way unworkable, for few peoplo realise to what extent tidal power is put evory day of the year in propelling ships, and, in tho case of tidal basins, in raising vessels of enormous tonnage. There are a number of places on the West Coast of .England between Pon zanco ami Holyhead that aro excel lently adapted for central tidal sta tions, and sub-stations might easily be established fit lifty-mile intervals, s Mr. Battiseombe believes that a tidal unit might bo obtained at a cost of only about one-eighth of a penny, including everything, as compared with from lJ/fcd to l2d. under tho power systems now in use.
