Severn Barrage (Wave , Cancelled)

 General Information.

Location in the UK : England, Bristol Channel    
Type of installation: Wave    on/offshore: off
Turbines :216  Capacity : 8640 MW
Approx Date of 1st power generation: Proposed


The Severn Barrage is a tidal scheme that particularly makes use of the Severn Bore, one of the highest tidal ranges in the world. The potential for energy generation is huge - though coming in peaks and troughs. There is significant objection on the grounds that it will take away many natural areas. This is perhaps a moot point as these areas will be lost anyway considering global climate change and sea level increases, the proposed barrage might well act as a sea defence as well as for power generation.
