Lancaster researchers say tidal range schemes can protect coastal areas from sea level rise. They believe these schemes are important for protecting habitats, homes, and businesses from a rising sea level. They say that with modern technology, estuarine barrages are the best way to protect these vital habitats. They also suggest coastal lagoons for locations around Britain’s coast. The researchers’ studies show that these schemes will provide jobs and opportunities for generations to come, as well as reliable power with reduced costs. Their research shows the viability of tidal range energy in the UK. They also point out that Great Britain has the second largest tidal range in the world and that major barrages have been considered since Victorian times. They mention two large scale schemes in France and South Korea that generate significant quantities of sustainable electricity.
