Read our Energy Insight for an overview of this topic.

  • Although there is much attention being given to tidal stream power plants, which depend on flowing seawater, tidal range technology – barrages and lagoons which rely on the rise and fall of the tides – is more established and has a very large global potential. Bangor University’s Dr Simon Neill has ...

  • A new Crown Estate report estimates that there is the potential to harness up to 153GW of tidal power capacity in the UK, using three types of technology - tidal stream, tidal range barrage and tidal range lagoon schemes. The Crown Estate has stressed that the report's conclusions are theoretical an...

  • A summary is presented of the findings of a major study into the feasibility of using rapid tidal currents to generate electricity in Orkney and Shetland. Tidal generation theory is summarized briefly together with an outline of economic, social and environmental factors.
