The Most Powerful Tidal Turbine in the World Has Started Generating Power Off Scotland Coast
The turbine is expected to provide enough electricity to meet the annual need of 2000 UK homes. This is one of several such projects seeking to provide cleaner energy to the UK grid and it is expected that several more tidal projects will come online over the next few years. Tidal and wave energy remains a surprisingly small sector of the green energy push in Europe with only 260 kilowatts added in Europe in 2020. Wind, for example, makes up approximately 14.7 gigawatts in additions last year.
