This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition Commercialise the U.K. Tidal Stream Industry with Government Revenue Support.
We call for the UK Government to support our Tidal Energy industry with an equitable revenue support deal that will deliver a plentiful supply of low cost, predictable green energy and give the UK world leading expertise and technology it can export around the globe.
The UK has 50% of Europe's tidal energy resource but the industry needs financial and policy support to deliver the innovations and scale to continue to reduce costs and allow it to compete in the energy market.
With the right support, tidal energy can play a key role in delivering the UK’s net-zero emissions target and creating jobs within UK industry.
The UK is in danger of losing the initiative just at a time when the demand to build world leading industries and expertise is needed most.
