UK government urged to support tidal energy

Pressure is growing on the UK government to support tidal energy with a national policy statement.

Last month, Charles Hendry, the Former Energy Minister, announced a need for a 500MW “pathfinder” project. It would aim to assess how practical it would be to generate our domestic and commercial electricity from tidal lagoons.

Renewable energy projects

The announcement comes following his own independent research into tidal energy. He suggests that tidal energy could be an effective means of producing mass electricity for the UK in the future.

Charles Hendry has also put forward that certain locations should be deemed suitable for the development of tidal energy power stations and should follow a set-up program like that of current nuclear power station start-ups.

According to Hendry, tidal lagoons would ensure the security of a reliable electricity supply and would offer a low-carbon alternative for our energy supply.
