HC Deb 19 July 1999 vol 335 c388W
Mrs. Brinton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what estimate he has made of the annual volume of carbon dioxide emissions which would be eliminated by the use of a 100MW tidal electric power plant. [91646]

Mr. Meale

A 100MW tidal electricity generating plant would make an annual carbon dioxide saving of between 80,000 and 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide depending upon the type of fossil fuel fired electricity generating plant displaced.
