UK-based marine energy specialist Atlantis Resources Corporation has this week announced plans for a wide-ranging feasibility study that could establish India as a world leader in tidal energy.

The company has signed a deal with Narendra Modi, the Chief Minister of the state of Gujarat, which will see it conduct an economic and technical feasibility study for sites in the Gulfs of Kutch and Khambhat that are known to have large tidal ranges.

If the results of the study are promising, the company intends to move forward with the deployment of tidal energy devices capable of generating over 100MW – enough power for around 40,000 households.
