With the ever-pressing need to move away from fossil fuels, our reliance on renewables will greatly increase too. Hydropower was the first form of renewable energy but has been largely forgotten in the current energy mix of the UK. Our research aims to examine the full hydropower picture in the UK, determining how hydropower and tidal energy resources can be developed and sustainably exploited to meet future renewable energy demands.
