Tidal Turbines Fuel Electric Cars in Yell, Scotland
Electric cars in Yell, Scotland, are being fueled solely on tidalturbines, contributing to the country’s goal of net-zero carbonemissions. These turbines are placed on the seafloor and thereforedo not take away from the visual aesthetic of the area. In addition,the location of the turbines does not present an obstruction for seanavigation in the surrounding areas.
To add to the benefits, tidal power allows for more predictabilityto powering Shetland’s grid. This technology, fueled by thesurrounding ocean, has been used for years on the island to powerYell homes and businesses. This, among other initiatives, are thefirst steps in the direction of addressing climate change in Scotland.
The country has been tirelessly working in their efforts to become
100 percent renewable, and last year, they achieved their venture inhaving the largest number of tidal turbines in the world, becominga leader in “blue” energy.
Blue energy innovation is vital in the country’s goal towards net-
zero emissions, but Scotland has also implemented other changes
to push towards this achievement, including the banning of selling
gas- or diesel-fueled cars by 2023 and breaking records in powering
millions of homes through wind power. The government has also
supported these actions and innovation as part of the strategy to
combat climate change.
