Scotland has developed a tidal turbine, inserted off the Japanese Naru Island. According to Simec Atlantis Energy (SAE), the turbine managed to generate 10 MW hours in 10 days of trial project.
Graham Reid, CEO of SAE, said the facilities are a turning point in developing green energy, adding it’s the initial tidal turbine in the country.
The east Asian country has many wave-energy potentials with its expansive coastline areas.
Japan expects renewable energy to account for 22% to 24% of its energy by the year 2030. Also, it looks for net zero emissions target by 2050.
The tidal turbine project could be a nice beginning for Japan’s green energy targets and there is a long way to go. Two years ago, Japan’s Natural Resources and Energy stated the country primarily relied on fossil fuels.
