Wave and tidal energy are the last two untapped global renewable
resources, with an overall potential comparable to other major
renewable resources. UK entrepreneurs, academic institutions
and companies have invented, researched, developed and
trialled the majority of leading technologies in this space.
Many of these are now ready to make the move to commercial
demonstration and deployment and the majority of the intended
demonstration and commercial array sites are located in UK
waters. All of this has been achieved because of long-term, solid
and committed policy support from governments in the UK.
