The AUSTEn project has mapped Australia’s tidal energy resource in unprecedented detail, assessed its economic feasibility and ability to contribute to the country’s future energy needs, and characterised in detail two potentially prospective tidal energy development sites to aid forthcoming developers. Project outcomes will aid the emerging tidal energy industry to develop commercial-scale tidal energy projects.
