Scotland Aiming To Boost Wave Energy Industry

It’s not just the waves – those aren’t that powerful actually. The main issue is salt corrosion. Marine energy requires materials that are strong, low-maintenace and resistant to corrosion. Very few materials indeed fit all three requirements at a reasonable cost. Wave energy is renewable energy’s nuclear fusion: incredibly promising and perfectly achievable from a purely technical point of view, but always just around the corner because of issues of cost. Tidal is indeed easier and not just because of protection. It can use technology perfected through centuries of hydropower with minimal modification, whereas wave energy requires inventing entirely new designs. And it’s far easier to design components when the water always flows in the same direction and at predictable, fairly constant rate. The huge issue with tidal is that it is limited in location (few sites have suff...
