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.

Simon de Pietro
  • 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
