This study aims to develop a guideline of environmental assessment for tidal current energy development in Korea. Based on an extensive discussion of the environmental effects of tidal current energy, this study provides an appropriate guideline for environmental assessment on tidal current energy development in Korea. The guideline includes a method for proper site selection and specific techniques for environmental impact assessment. The guideline for environmental impact assessment consists

It is expected that the guideline can facilitate the often demanding environmental assessment review process and to reduce the time taken for it.
