Scottish energy powering EVs with waves: Energy from waves in Scotland is currently being used to power an electric vehicle (EV) charging point on the island of Yell in Shetland at Cullivoe harbour.

The charge point is thought to be the UK’s 1st that allows drivers to top up from a tidal energy source.

With the last 5 years, underwater turbines, produced by the tidal energy company Nova Innovation, have been powering homes & businesses in Shetland and only recently they have  been joined up to an EV charger.

The project has been given funding by way of Transport Scotland.

Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson stated: “This type of innovation is key in responding to the global climate emergency and highlights the opportunities that can be realised here in Scotland as we transition to a net zero economy.”

Simon Forrest, Chief Executive Officer of Nova Innovation, added: “We now have the reality of tidal powered cars, which demonstrates the huge steps forward we are making in tackling the climate emergency and achieving net zero by working in harmony with our natural environment.”
