Ground breaking research has been carried out throughout the UK by a number of bodies.
Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network – The Knowledge Network facilitates the exchange of data in the emerging wave and tidal energy industry. It contains many resources on a range of relevant topics, including reports and datasets that can be downloaded for free.
Also available are links to information held by other organisations which may be available on a commercial basis. For more information, click here
The Crown Estate Consolidation of wave and tidal EIA/HRA issues and research priorities – As part of the current initiative to assist with developing a coordinated approach to addressing the key strategic EIA/HRA issues associated with wave and tidal stream arrays (under, for example, an Offshore Renewables Joint Industry Programme (ORJIP) for wave and tide), Aquatera Limited was commissioned by The Crown Estate to undertake a short, focused consultancy project. This report, produced by Aquatera Ltd, has been informed by an extensive consultation process including a workshop hosted by Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) which was attended by over 50 participants. Therefore, the results presented within this report are considered to represent a consensus as to the key EIA/HRA issues and the current research gaps and priorities relevant to the wave and tidal sectors.
