Wave Hub off Cornwall Recieves Funding

7,500 UK homes could soon be powered by clean wave energy, thanks to a £21.5 million government grant. The project, 10 miles off the Cornish coast, will cost a total of £28 million, and now has sufficient funds to go ahead. Planning permission still needs to be sought, but hopefully this offshore project should be less of a problem than recent attempts by UK politicians to install green energy sources in their homes.

The project will include a hub into which various generation devices could be plugged. According to Stephen Peacock, who works for the RDA who provided the grant, "Wave Hub has the potential to make an enormous contribution to tackling climate change and we believe it could transform the wave technology industry." :: The Guardian
