Analysing the potential role of tidal energy in the transition to a decarbonised energy system in Scotland
Calvillo Munoz, Christian (Principal Investigator) Ordonez Sanchez, Stephanie Eugenia (Principal Investigator)
Tidal energy conversion (TEC) is a relatively new technology with little indication of its economic cost. This uncertainty in costs have made TEC to be underestimated in many energy strategies and roadmaps.
This project will thus aim to i) find the commonalities and differences between cost models and pathways applicable to TEC, using a common database and power prediction evaluation, and ii) assess the potential role of TEC in Scotland, using the TIMES energy system model
This new approach of combining both cost and pathway models, may give a more accurate predictions of the long-term cost of TEC, making it possible to better assess the contributions of TEC to the electricity mix in Scotland.

Calvillo Munoz, Christian (Principal Investigator) Ordonez Sanchez, Stephanie Eugenia (Principal Investigator) Aranceta-Garza, Alejandra (Principal Investigator)
Co-founder with Dr Ordonez-Sanchez and Dr Aranceta-Garza of the StrathWide Research Fund. This fund was set for University of Strathclyde’s early career researchers to undertake collaborative and independent work amongst them. Eight, nine and seven funded applications were granted for StrathWide 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively.

In total, approx. £60,000 have been secured over three years to fund 24 projects. the funding was awarded from the University of Strathclyde Internal funds and Faculties.
