NOVA INNOVATION WINS MAJOR TIDAL ENERGY PROJECT - WWF Scotland comment

Responding to the news today (Thursday) that Scotland-based tidal energy leader Nova Innovation has won a major new European tidal energy project [1] Sarah Beattie-Smith, Climate and Energy Policy Officer at WWF Scotland said:

“With some of the most powerful tides in Europe, Scotland is well placed to lead in developing this promising technology, which will help to cut climate emissions and create green jobs right across the country.

“We hope the kind of innovation and investment shown in this major new project, inspires politicians and others to give backing to ground breaking ideas in other areas of energy use like heat and transport, to power Scotland towards its target of generating half of all Scotland’s energy needs from renewables by 2030.”
