Wave & Tidal - Useful Information
Consenting Position Papers
It is essential that the wave and tidal energy industry understands its impacts on the marine environment and methods for minimising or mitigating them. RenewableUK has been working with Scottish Renewables and The Natural Environment Research council and Scottish Renewables to consolidate existing knowledge through the development of a series of position papers. Developed in collaboration with industrial stakeholders, key consenting bodies, NGOs and regulators, the series of position papers provide a summary of key research and evidence as well as making a series of recommendations that will help steer further work.
- Marine Mammals Impacts
- Impacts on Fish and Shellfish Ecology
- Ornithological Impacts
Set up by the UK Government the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult has a mission to accelerate the development, testing, commercialisation and deployment of offshore renewable energy including offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.
Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network
Portal developed by The Crown Estate in collaboration with industry and managed by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. The Knowledge Network facilitates the exchange of data in the emerging wave and tidal energy sectors and contains many resources on a range of relevant topics, including reports and datasets that can be downloaded for free.
The Carbon Trust
The Carbon Trust has produced a number of useful papers on the wave and tidal energy industry including resource assessments and cost reduction methodologies.
The Crown Estate
The Crown Estate, the owner of the seabed around the UK with a stewardship role, continues to play an important part in the development of wave and tidal technologies.
