The O2 will be the world's most powerful tidal turbine, capable of delivering energy for more than 1700 homes.

Shows how beneficial tidal can be, even as it's sometimes a forgotten/overlooked renewable energy. Can it scale and provide a significant percentage of the world's energy needs? Probably not. But it can be a great gap filler in localities where it's available. And since tidal movement is rather consistent, the claims of 1,700+ homes is more impressive than a comparable claim for wind or solar, right? Since tidal would have an inherently greater capacity factor?

Wave and tidal certainly has its place in the transition to net zero. The technologies are especially well -suited to island communities.
