Prime Minster ‘impressed’ by tidal energy proposals

The future for tidal energy gained another boost at Prime Minister’s Question Time this week.

On the back of the COP26 Summit, The Right Honourable Alistair Carmichael, MP for Orkney and Shetland, asked Prime Minsister Boris Johnson to support tidal stream projects.

He said: “Now is the moment for turning words into action, and I ask that you create a ringfenced pot for developing tidal stream energy in the next round of Contract for Difference, a decison that has to be taken by the end of the month.”

The Prime Minster replied: “I have heard this point several times from the benches opposite and I am very impressed by the tidal proposals that I have seen… I will certainly go away and look at it again.”
