    DescriptionWe all know that Northern Ireland possesses amazing natural resources – the Giant’s Causeway, the North Antrim coast, the Mourne Mountains – just to name a few.

    But it turns out that NI is home to one of Earth’s best sites for harnessing tidal energy – specifically, Strangford Lough. The world’s first tidal power station was constructed here in 2007.
