This short film, narrated by scientist and TV presenter Heather Reid at Whitelees Windfarm, explores the opportunities for using the power of the wind, waves and tides in Scotland to produce energy.
Heather speaks to Laura Watson, an engineer with Scottish Renewables, who explains how wind and tidal turbines works and the difficulties of using these turbines including selecting the best location and under-water maintenance.
Tom Wills, an engineer from Aquamarine, explains how his company’s new Oyster technology converts wave energy into power. Storms in the Scottish sea are just one of the challenges they face.
