Three Hot Features At ITES 2017
Brand New Session
Review how storage can support tidal, including EMEC’s use of Hydrogen
Floating tidal projects delivering on reliability
Scotrenewables, Sustainable Marine Energy
Where is the industry now? Hear from Wales, Korea and Canada on their developments
The tidal industry is on the cusp of commercialisation. 3 key projects include:
MeyGen - By November tidal’s first commercial turbine would have been operational for a year.
With 4 Project Managers to share insights on the lessons learnt in the first MeyGen Phase 1A panel session.
Today, we are witnessing the transformation of a sector. MeyGen is one of the most exciting and innovative renewable energy developments in the world, marking the long-awaited arrival of tidal stream generation as a serious, large-scale player in global energy markets...
Tim Cornelius, CEO, Atlantis
Scotrenewables - hot off the press, would have been grid-connected at EMEC for +1 year.
The sector is now beyond its emerging phase and the SR2000 device is a bold step forward proving the viability of tidal as a sustainable, reliable and predictable energy source.
Simon de Pietro, CEO of DP Energy and key investor in Scotrenewables.
Tidal lagoons - technology is viable and would make a "strong contribution" to the UK's energy supply
If you look at the cost spread out over the entire lifetime - 120 years for the project - it comes out at about 30p per household for the next 30 years. That's less than a pint of milk.
Former UK energy minister Mr Charles Hendry
