Victory for wave and tidal energy

28 10 2011

Last week, the UK government announced new levels of support for different types of renewable energy in the UK, and one of the big winners was for marine energy. The Irish government now needs to follow suit

This is a huge victory for wave and tidal energy, and a great boost for the future.

This week, the WWF published its Positive Energy report, suggesting that by 2030, the UK could get up to 90% of it’s energy from clean, safe sources like wind and tidal. Ireland could also achieve similar results.

The emerging wave and tidal industry now needs to start building the first arrays needed to start generating electricity from our coastal waters, which could provide a fifth of our energy needs by 2030.
