Abstract

A report providing estimates of UK tidal stream resources, based on an updated hydrodynamic methodology for technical resource, practical resource and cost of energy at all UK sites with sufficient energy density and depth. The assessment concludes that tidal energy devices are needed that can cope with difficult and deep waters such as those in the Pentland Firth where much of the resource is located.
