This looks like good news as it points to other countries trying to work out some more natural forms of energy.I am curious as to how feasible this is for a world wide attempt or at least on a larger scale.

Then I can't help wonder how long before Scotland all the sudden has terrorist lurking in the corners of the country and we have to invade them because they aren't playing ball with the big boys. I guess that will be a thread for another day, but hopefully not!




Scotland says it will develop a tidal energy farm expected to yield 10 megawatts of electricity, the largest tidal energy project ever undertaken in the world.

Anyhow, good for them. Nice to know some countries are trying to do the right thing for this world

Yeah...saw this ...

although at 40 million quid, and only supplying enough power for 5,000 homes I think they have some distance to go before it becomes even remotely viable.

Yeah I seen this on the BBC, seemingly its going to be a test to see if it is at least feasible and if successful they will build more in the north of Scotland

I agree but I imagine after a little trial and error they may or should be able to improve it to a grander and perhaps cheaper scale.And Maybe. some young genius will look at how they are doing it and say, well, why don't you just do this and change that and presto it will a whole lot better!
