    Scotland’s green energy project that aims to generate renewable energy from waves just got noticed by the U.K. government and was nominated for the NER300 fund by the European Commission, European Investment Bank, and member states of the European Union. The Pentland Orkney Wave Energy Resource (POWER) project proposes to place 24 wave energy converters from Pelamis Wave Power and 10 Oyster 3 wave energy converters from Aquamarine Power in the Orkneys, offshore Scotland. Hooking this one on to the Scottish electric grid could help generate about 28-megawatts of wave energy.

    Here’s wishing the POWER project luck, hoping that the nomination helps it win the funding, giving the land of bagpipes and scotch a ton of green energy.
