Your post made me realise I knew very little about the construction of the bridge , shamed me into looking it up . Designed by two English engineers , .....ouch , construction was undertaken by a consortium of British engineering companies with the steel , (not wraught iron as per the Eiffel Tower ,) being supplied by Seimens and a French company . Couldn't find any specific details re. the work force but I'd imagine they came from all parts of Britain and Ireland plus some from the continent .

Didn't know about the one in the midlands , must be many places on the mainland that would be suitable even allowing for summer water shortage . Similarly must be a number of places where tidal schemes could be set up even if it does mean subsidies and , asuming we build them ourselves , I'd much prefer that as opposed to Hinkley .

Hydro's been on the go for many years in Scotland , visited the hydro scheme at Loch Awe a number of times. No idea how much it contributes nationally but significant percentage I guess . Lots of small schemes in Scotland, seems to be a growing market , some use the same water over and over as it drops through different levels . Good use of resources methinks.

Your not wrong ,onshore storage pretty much full to the brim I believe . It's quite a complicated picture at the moment not just about the Saudl's refusing to cut production . Two main factors in recent years have been the slow down in global demand and the ramp up of shale production in USA this lead to their suppliers having to move into different markets to maintain economic stability. As these countries are all pretty oil dependent nobody cut production , so supply grew and prices plummeted . Great for consumers not so good for the oil industry , investment has been dramatically cut, rigs are being closed and something like 250,000 employees have been paid off . Can't go on forever.
Mailman makes a good point , in future the dependence on oil will be much reduced. The recent Paris agreement signalled that . Climate change makes it a necessity , even the Saudi's recognise that .I believe they've started to invest heavily in electrical energy production and renewables . Obviously things won't change dramatically overnight but the next couple of decades are going to be very interesting .
