Nautricity's Device to Make Tidal Energy More Affordable

Tides are capable of producing electricity and are more predictable than wind or solar power. Just like wind turbines in the sea, they need to stand on very firm ground. All of that is known from the 60’s, but what researchers didn’t know was how to make that cost-effective, the main reason why development lagged behind.

Scotland to Have World's Largest Tidal Power Farm

According to ScottishPower Renewables, the project is expected to cost about £40 million ($65 million) and will be capable of generating enough energy to power around 5,000 homes.
