Tide v Wave and Wind energy: Tidal energy has the significant merit that it is very predictable as to when and magnitude thereby helping energy network controllers to know when and how much energy they need to switch on from other sources when the tide is not running.

Note that Friday is the last day to submit responses to the draft Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill shortly to seek ratification by the Scottish Parliament.
My view is that the draft bill goes only a little way to giving real empowerment to local communities. Local empowerment should rest with Community Councils rather than as currently with Regional (sorry Local) Authorities.
