Tidal Energy: A Wave of Opportunity for Atlantic Canada
- Aug 26, 2021 4:26 pm GMT
This summer, off the coast of Scotland, the world’s most powerful tidal turbine began generating electricity to the public energy grid. The 680-tonne turbine is now anchored in the Fall of Warness where a subsea cable connects the 2MW offshore unit to the local onshore electricity network. The powering on of this turbine made headlines around the world as a significant development for renewable energy. These developments have important implications for Atlantic Canada. With the most powerful tides on the planet, we have a significant potential to produce a large amount of reliable renewable energy from tidal sources.
