Catapult Welcomes New Marine Energy Report

Published 19 March 2019

Gavin Smart, ORE Catapult’s Head of Analysis & Insights, has welcomed the publication of the UK Marine Energy 2019 – A New Industry report from the Marine Energy Council in conjunction with Scottish Renewables.

“The report builds on work carried out by ORE Catapult in 2018, and uses up to date case studies and industry survey information to set out the achievements of the UK marine energy sector and its potential to add significant value to the UK economy.

“It outlines possible routes to market to allow the UK to realise this value through the generation of clean energy, creation of high-value jobs in coastal and other areas and how it can capitalise on a global export opportunity.

“We expect the report to be invaluable for the UK marine energy industry in making the case for supportive policies that can help to bring the industry to full commercialisation.”
