Harnessing the power of the sea – 7pm Monday 27th April
Renewable energy is rarely out of the news, and extracting energy from the sea is a particularly high priority with the Scottish and UK governments. The waters around the UK are a rich potential source of electricity for future generations. But how will such schemes be realised? In this talk the basic physics and the most promising marine energy technologies will be briefly described. Some of the challenges, obstacles, incentives and opportunities will be outlined, and listeners will be invited to add their thoughts, ideas and impressions to the mix in what we hope will be a lively debate.
