Wales’ Story

The waters off the coast of Wales have some of the best wave, tidal and wind energy resources in Europe. All of these can be harnessed to generate clean power to help us reach net zero whilst protecting our valuable marine habitats. Fostering a thriving, diverse marine energy sector means generating power from multiple sources:



Moving water carries kinetic energy which can be captured by wave energy devices.



Predictable and reliable, tidal energy offers a near continuous power supply.

Offshore Wind


Floating Offshore Wind (FLOW) uses floating structures tethered to the sea bed and will become the backbone of our future electrical energy system.

What we do

Marine Energy Wales connects, represents and champions the marine energy industry in Wales.
