The UK is the world’s leader in offshore wind with over 4GW of capacity installed. The UK is also a leader and one of the most attractive markets in the world for investment in tidal stream energy. It will be for developers to bring forward proposals if they wish to attempt to combine the two technologies. We are aware that there is some research in this area which is at an early stage.
