UK Ocean Energy 2019 Review
0001 1

The UK Ocean Energy 2019 Review outlines the progress made in wave and tidal technologies, markets and policy in the UK last year. The report praises 2019 a year of growth for the UK ocean energy sector, with several projects in the water and thousands of MWh of electricity produced.

The report presents numerous innovative cross-border collaborations, deployment of state-of-the-art projects and offshore tests that were undertaken in the UK, mostly supported by Research & Development.

To further progress the sector, the report calls for a dedicated policy and revenue support for ocean energy in order to deliver significant sustainable economic benefits and contribute towards achieving the UK’s net-zero target.

The report was produced by the Policy and Innovation Group at University of Edinburgh in collaboration with Wave Energy Scotland.
