A study for the assessment of tidal energy potential in the country has been conducted by the Central Electricity Authority. According to the study, there is an estimated potential of about 7000 MW in the Gulf of Cambay, 1200 MW in the Gulf of Kutch in the State of Gujarat and about 100 MW in the Gangetic Delta in the Sunderbans region of West Bengal.
The Ministry had sanctioned a project for setting up a 3.75 MW demonstration tidal power plant at Durgaduani Creek in Sunderbans, West Bengal to the West Bengal Renewable Energy Development Agency, Kolkata in Feb 2008. Recentely, the Government of West Bengal has decided not to continue with the project due to the very high project cost.
