Tide Turning On Wave Power?

Slightly worrying news here in the FT about the withdrawal of one of the businesses developing a major tidal energy scheme in the Western Isles, leaving an Inverness company holding the renewable baby.

However it's encouraging to see there are still plans to harness the tides in the Pentland Firth between Caithness and Orkney. Having almost lost my lunch a number of times on the Scrabster-Stromness ferry I can vouch for the power of those waves!
