Wave & Tidal

It is estimated the UK has around 35% of Europe’s total wave resource and 50% of its tidal resource.

Wave energy is harvested when the motion of the waves drives mechanical movement in a device which converts this motion into electricity. A variety of wave devices have been demonstrated, both floating and fixed to the seabed, with capacities of hundreds of kilowatts but these are set to expand to the megawatt scales as the sector develops.

Tidal energy relies on flows of water to rotate turbines in a similar manner to a wind turbine, or to cause an aerofoil wing to oscillate, driving a hydraulic system. Like the wave sector, tidal technology is in its infancy with various differing technologies having already been demonstrated.
