Authorities in Liverpool in the U.K. want the river Mersey to be home to a huge tidal power project, thereby playing a pivotal role in the country’s sustainable future. Initial proposals for a tidal barrage spanning the Mersey were made as far back as 1924. An agreement with the Korea Water Resources Corporation was signed in December 2022 for the sharing of tidal power knowledge.
The various features of the Mersey Tidal Power Project include:
- The project has the potential to power as many as 1 million homes
- It can generate thousands of jobs for the region in the process.
- The facility would have a capacity of at least 1 gigawatt and will make use of river Mersey’s tidal range
