IMechE - Morecambe Bay Tidal Barrage

24th May 2022 6:30 pm

The 2022 Thomas Lowe Gray Lecture will discuss Morecambe Bay as a case study of a Tidal Range Project in the UK, which has one of the best tidal resources in the world. Currently Tidal Range projects under development offer an achievable 10 GW installed capacity, delivering over 20TWh/y, about 5% of UK energy use with the potential to increase further by 2 to 3 times with other tidal range project sites around the UK.

Attend this lecture either at in person at One Birdcage Walk or book to join the livestream.

Topics include:

  • Learn about recent research from Lancaster University covering the Lancaster Tidal Energy Model (LTEM)
  • Understand how LTEM and its cost assessment aids decision-making for tidal projects and how the approach can be applied to other tidal areas
  • Hear how complexities around funding for tidal projects can be identified and overcome
  • Find out how proposed projects will contribute to energy production and Net-Zero efforts
