When I saw this latest story about wave power, I was surprised that it was news. But apparently news it is, and actually it is worth passing on.
The Carbon Trust have produced a report that sets out, apparently for the first time, the UK’s wave power resource and have found that the majority of that resource is in the south west of England and off the west coast of Scotland. They estimate that about 11% of the UK’s current power needs could be met by large scale wave farms.
Like I said, I was surprised this was news because the Carbon Trust has published similar information to this previously. This latest report however goes further than previously and so the reason for this post.
