OCEAN AND WAVE PROJECTS IN THE UK
A tidal stream power scheme in the Pentland Firth uses technology akin to underwater wind turbines. Marine Current Turbines has installed a tidal energy system at the mouth of Stangford Lough. And Carnegie Wave Energy has approval to build the first commercial wave energy project connected to the national grid in England, off Hayle in Cornwall. The potential for similar projects has been studied elsewhere in the UK but some planned schemes have been cancelled after the companies involved went into administration.
