Scottish scientists obtained hydrogen from tidal energy for the first time

A Scottish research and demonstration centre declared being the first in producing the hydrogen gas from the tidal energy. 

The 25th of August significantly marked the energy and environmental fields, as the scientists from the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) discovered a possibility to replace the polluting fossil fuels with zero-pollution gas.    


The Scotrenewables’ SR2000, Tocardo’s TFS and T2 turbine, converters of tidal energy, supplied power to an electrolyser which consequently used its energy for dividing water into its chemical elements - hydrogen and oxygen.


The £3 million project was backed by the Scottish Government.
