I've got high hopes for tidal power. If you site it well it very rarely stops producing power, unlike wind.

Also Scotland could be the Saudi Arabia of European tidal power. The volume of the North Sea travels through the Pentland Firth every day....twice. That's a hell of a lot of energy which we could tap in to.

Just looked it up and the estimated capacity is around 27GW. Scotland currently uses 6GW.
