The Performance Assessment of Wave and Tidal Array Systems (PerAWaT) project, launched in October 2009 with £8m of ETI investment. The project delivered validated, commercial software tools capable of significantly reducing the levels of uncertainty associated with predicting the energy yield of major wave and tidal stream energy arrays. It also produced information that will help reduce commercial risk of future large scale wave and tidal array developments.

How many undocumented children live in London?
Estimating the numbers of migrants in the UK is notoriously difficult, especially those with an irregular migration status who may not be counted in official government statistics. It is not for nothing that the task has been described as counting the uncountable. However, information about the population of children and young people who are not…20/01/20
Energy Policy – Scotland - Pete
Scotland should consider new nuclear power stations, investing in hydrogen and installing many more windfarms to meet its climate goals, an expert inquiry has concluded. The inquiry by the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Scotland’s national academy, said a massive increase in low-carbon electricity production would be needed in order to reach the country’s new goal … [Continue Reading]

Just 10% of fossil fuel subsidy cash 'could pay for green transition' - Damian Carrington Environment editor
Redirecting small portion of subsidies would unleash clean energy revolution, says reportSwitching just some of the huge subsidies supporting fossil fuels to renewables would unleash a runaway clean energy revolution, according to a new report, significantly cutting the carbon emissions that are driving the climate crisis.Coal, oil and gas get more than $370bn (£305bn) a year in support, compared with $100bn for renewables, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) report found. Just 10-30% of the fossil fuel subsidies would pay for a global transition to clean energy, the IISD said. Continue reading...
PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry hails Government plans to run new clean power auctions - Jack Dobson-Smith
Today the STA has welcomed Government plans to hold a new round of clean power auctions, set to take place in 2021, for solar and onshore wind. A new Contracts for Difference auction will enable greater deployment of the cleanest, cheapest forms of power generation today, cutting costs to consumers by £200m-£300m annually. [1] The policy is one of the STA’s key priorities for 2020. [2] Chief Executive Chris Hewett said: “Today’s announcement marks a major shift in the right direction for Government policy on onshore renewables, and a welcome opportunity for the solar industry.” “New clean power auctions for ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry hails Government plans to run new clean power auctions appeared first on Solar Trade Association.
