In this article, the author discusses the feasibility of marine energy as a serious business. He cites the growing interest in the Pentland Firth in Scotland as a potential source of wave and tidal energy due to its strong tidal flows. He presents the major problems facing the tidal energy sector including grid connections, capital funding costs and infrastructure.
