Wave power doesn’t get nearly as much attention (or respect) as solar or wind. Yet the potential is enormous. Aquamarine Power is leading the way and will be building the biggest wave energy site ever.
Aquamarine Power has received full consent from the Scottish Government for a 40MW wave farm off the north-west coast of Lewis, Scotland – making it the world’s largest fully-permitted ocean energy site.
This will ultimately see the deployment of between 40 and 50 Oyster devices along the coast … in one of the best wave energy locations in Europe. Once complete, the farm will have the capacity to power nearly 30,000 homes.
