No, it’s not drug deaths, it’s wave power. This wee gem almost slipped by me. It’s not in the usual expected places – Business Insider or Energy Voice. The National, Glasgow Times, Edinburgh Evening News and the Somerset County Gazette (?) have it but the Scottish nationals don’t as far as I can see.
At the end of the BBC Scotland Breakfast, 2 minute insert, this morning, around 06:30am:
‘Work is starting on a 30 tonne wave machine to generate power off Orkney. The device which is 20 metres long will be deployed at sea in the autumn. It’s been designed in Edinburgh and those behind the project say it’s a milestone in Scotland being at the forefront of leading the UK to being carbon neutral.’
I can’t find any more detail but, hey, it’s enough to have BBC Scotland onside.
