I've read somewhere that they are going to build an experimental sub-surface generator in the Bristol Channel/Severn Estuary. Not sure of the specifics/location - but remember thinking that maintenance would be a 'mare!!
I thought fusion was the nuclear way forward?
Are wind turbines so inefficient? I realise that they can't cope with peaks in demand, so will never satisfy 100% of the requirement - but apart from that?
And to get back to boats
- I've been told that diesel engines were originally designed to run on peanut oil - and vegetable oil can be (relatively easily) turned into biodiesel, which doesn't need to use any of our mineral resources, or any modification to your smoke producing machinery. They only smell like KFC if you run on used oil and don't wash it properly when you process it.
Oh - and you need a diesel engine in the first place...
