You’ve probably seen this already, but I thought I’d connect it to the wider and longer story of Scottish renewables. See links below.
From Energy Voice yesterday and reported accurately by Reporting Scotland (!):
‘Scotrenewables Tidal Power said its SR2000 device, launched in 2016, had clocked up three gigawatt hours (GWhs) of electricity in its first year of testing at the European Marine Energy Centre (Emec). It has survived harsh winter storms to supply the equivalent annual electricity demand of around 830 UK households. At times, it has covered more than a quarter of Orkney’s electricity demand. In May 2018, a report from the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult said that the tidal stream industry could generate a net cumulative benefit to the UK of £1.4 billion, including considerable exports, and support 4,000 jobs by 2030.’
Just a few of the recent reports here on renewables in Scotland:
