As I posted in the last thread about this, the SeaPower machine is basically an unorthodox design of compressed-air motor, using balloons as flexible pistons of variable area. It has certain advantages and disadvantages relative to conventional rotary or reciprocating air-motors such as can be found in air-tools such as grinders and jackhammers, but it is fundamentally the same thing. It has no characteristics that make it a source of energy, it's just an air-motor.

This is the quandary,of tidal power,a colossal,guaranteed movement of billions of cubic meters,of a medium we know can be used to power turbines...but...a change of direction,and slack periods,make for limitations,on overall,average output.

I have read some interesting proposals,over the years,to get water where it needs to be...even one using giant sponges :)
