Well this should give a better idea of how much tidal power can be harnessed...
Quote:
The Government-backed Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has announced plans to develop a model of the UKs tidal energy resources and how they might interact with each other.

The Tidal Modelling Project is looking for participants to put forward proposals that would investigate different tidal energy extraction systems around the UK and how extraction at one site might affect others.

Should they also do some research into how much the rotation of the earth will be slowed per MW extracted?

Ta for that! I had wondered how much the slowing was.
