Countryfile Magazine - - News -

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.
