MeyGen
Unique assessment advances commercial viability of tidal energy
Publish date:

Tidal stream energy could theoretically supply more than 150 terawatt hours per annum globally. This represents a potential total global market of up to 50 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity.

Tidal stream energy is a significant renewable energy source because, although it varies, the power output is highly  predictable. As a result, it can help to balance supply and demand as part of a balanced energy mix alongside other renewable sources such as wind and solar power.
