Rule Britannia!

An Energy and Climate Change Select Committee has warned that the UK could ‘rule the waves’ by becoming a leading player in marine and tidal renewables if the Government adopts a more ‘visionary approach’.

Up to 20% of the UK’s energy could come from wave and tidal power – the UK has some of the largest wave and total resources in Europe.

As Renewable Energy Focus reports, 7 of the 8 full scale prototype wave and tidal devices installed worldwide, are installed in the UK.
