Yesterday’s edition of the You and Yours programme on BBC Radio 4 included a 15-minute section on the UK’s efforts to generate electricity from waves and tides. You can download the 53-minute episode from the BBC’s web site - the relevant segment begins at 24 min 40 seconds in.
As the programme highlights, Britain’s status as an island nation makes it ideally suited to wave and tidal generation, and yet efforts to extract useful energy from the seas are still in their infancy. The programme is well worth a listen.
