‘Success story’: Britain invests £20 million in a’major push’ for revolutionary tidal power after Brexit.

With the announcement of a record £20 million investment in green tidal technology, BREXIT BRITAIN has scored a major victory this week.

The government has pledged to support tidal as part of its renewable energy auction scheme, which aims to help the country reach net-zero economic status by 2050.

Ministers hope to diversify and strengthen the UK’s renewable energy market, despite the fact that it is already a haven for offshore and onshore wind farms.

By 2035, all of the UK’s electricity will come from renewable sources, according to the government.

The move is part of a larger effort to reduce the UK’s global-warming greenhouse emissions by 78% in the same timeframe.

The government has set aside £20 million per year for Tidal Stream electricity to help achieve this goal.

The funding is expected to boost marine technology in the sector, resulting in the creation of hundreds of jobs and economic growth in the UK.

This will be accomplished through the Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme’s fourth allocation round, which will open next month.

CfDs are the government’s primary means of encouraging green energy investment by incentivizing energy production from low-carbon sources.

The £20 million increase brings the total funding for the fourth allocation round to a new high of £285 million per year for the UK.

“As an island nation, we are perfectly placed to capitalise on clean marine energy, building on our booming offshore wind sector, which is now a British industrial success story,” said Business and Energy Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng.

“We hope to see marine energy follow in the footsteps of other renewable technologies, which have seen significant cost reductions in recent years thanks to UK government support.”

“Today’s investment is a major step toward tidal power becoming a key component of the next generation of renewable energy projects needed to strengthen energy security as we work to reduce our reliance on volatile fossil fuels.”

Tidal energy, according to the government, has the potential to significantly reduce the UK’s carbon emissions.

Tidal energy uses the power of the seas to spin turbines that generate electricity, similar to how wind turbines do.

Tidal energy, on the other hand, is thought to be more reliable than wind because tides are constant and predictable, according to scientists.

Each year, advances in the field make tidal technology more efficient and less expensive.

The UK’s “low-carbon energy mix” now includes tidal energy.
