Summary:imageThe aim of this booklet is to increase understanding of tidal stream technology and the significant opportunities it presents for helping us to tackle climate change and reduce the UK’s dependence on energy imports. It highlights some of the concerns people have expressed about the impacts of the technology – on wildlife for example – and highlights the barriers to growth. As independent advisors to the UK Government and the devolved administrations on sustainable development, the SDC trusts that you find this booklet useful and relevant.
Purpose:On Stream aims to break down confusion and increase understanding of tidal stream energy. It draws on the SDC's previous work on Tidal Power in the UK published in Turning the Tide.
