This article reports that alternative technology company, Woodshed Technologies, has been granted a British patent for a novel marine tidal energy system that can provide reliable electricity in Great Britain. Together with two other Australian companies, it intends to co-develop British tidal energy facilities. Woodshed's Tidal Delay tidal power technology utilizes an existing land formation that creates a tidal barrier separating moving, rising and falling bodies of seawater.
