Data Predicts Vast Output

Navier Flow Consultants – a leading UK-based independent specialist in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics – having assessed the feasibility of TPGen24’s ability to generate power – recently issued a report with two incredible headline findings:– TPGen24 has the potential to deliver 9.53 TWh per year – enough to provide power

Tidal energy is the missing link to achieving Base Load by 2030

The Energy Dashboard is an incredibly useful tool, highlighting Great Britain’s energy generation over a 48 hour period. Constantly updated, it shows fluctuations between resources used. It’s made for interesting reading over the last few weeks. Specifically, it has perfectly captured that, when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun

Why tidal energy must rise up the agenda now

TPGen24 was recently featured by New Civil Engineer. See why Stuart Murphy said that now is the time for tidal power to come to the forefront of the energy mix: Tidal energy: it’s a much discussed, yet significantly underappreciated subject, despite the fact these projects could deliver huge benefits to

Tidal lagoons – a vital role to play

Charles Hendry’s Independent Review of Tidal Lagoons was published in 2016, highlighting the important role Tidal energy has to play in the UK’s energy mix.The former Minister of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change could hardly have higher credentials when it comes to making informed judgements on

Numerical Analysis

Numerical analysis has been carried out at a concept level on this novel tidal lagoon system. Initially, a 0D modelling approach was adopted to coarsely optimise plant operation parameters and estimate the energy yield from the proposed concept. Following the 0D studies, a more detailed and higher fidelity 1D model

Bespoke Solutions

Over 198 countries have a coastline with about 40% of the World’s population living within 100km of the coast. With no base material or transportation costs, facts which show why Tidal energy is – and will continue to be – the “go to” source of green energy worldwide.  Considering solutions

Striving for perfection

The benefits of Tidal Power are clear – predictable, green energy plus an inexhaustible source of energy that can automatically be relayed into the grid. Water is considered to have a higher energy density than other renewable energy forms, which makes it possible to generate electricity even at low speeds.

Tidal Energy – The Future

In June 2020, Britain passed a significant energy production landmark having gone a full two months without burning coal to generate power (The National Grid Electricity System Operator, ESO June 2020). Rewind back 10 years and the landscape was very different. Great Britain generated 75% of its electricity from coal
