Peel Energy has explored the potential for generating electricity from tidal power in the Mersey estuary.
The estuary has one of the largest tidal ranges in the UK – and is considered to be one of the best locations in the UK for a tidal power scheme. The largest potential scheme, if consented, could supply a substantial portion of the energy needs of Liverpool and Merseyside, or some 260,000 homes. The estuary is ecologically diverse and includes internationally important bird habitats. This needs to be recognised in any scheme that comes forward.
