This brochure is the final publishable report of the project SEAFLOW funded under the fourth RTD Framework programme (1995-1998). The project demonstrated the technical feasibility of converting energy from tidal current stream to electricity using conventional technologies in a rough under water environment. A 300 kWe prototype was installed near Lynmouth in North Devon (UK). The testing proved the validity of the concept and highlighted the research needed to bring it to the market place. The CENEX study, funded under the third RTD Framework programme, showed that at least 48TWh could be exploited easily.
