Mersey Tidal Power

Peel Energy worked with regional stakeholders to explore the potential of generating electricity from tidal power in the Mersey Estuary. The study, completed in 2011, identified the preferred scheme as a 700-MW tidal barrage that could generate enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 200,00 homes. This scheme is a Mayoral Priority within the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
