Renewable Energy: Tidal Energy
The three month consultation by the Department of Energy and Climate Change on a shortlist of five potential schemes to generate electricity from the tidal power of the Severn estuary has now closed. The response by the CBA may be downloaded from the consultation responses page. A report opposing a full-scale tidal power barrage across the Severn by Liberal Democrat MPs, Welsh Assembly Members and councillors in the west of England and Wales may be found here (PDF | 753KB).
BERR published the Severn tidal power feasibility study in April 2008.
DARE has produced a report on the implementation of micro hydro schemes on Dartmoor. It provides a methodological approach to assessing the potential of a site and to getting relevant permissions (PDF | 1.12MB).
