Who we work with
Our Impact in 2015/16
Across all areas of our operations, we work hard to make a tangible difference to the offshore wind, wave and tidal industries.
Our people and programmes have helped scores of businesses in designing and developing novel concepts to resolve issues inherent with offshore renewables and improve performance.
We have the largest concentration of open-access renewable energy testing facilities in the world, and have become the ‘go to’ organisation for testing and demonstration.
Testing and validation
We play a key role in proving and de-risking innovative new technologies, to lower the cost of energy from offshore sources. Our multi-disciplinary team of experts and engineers use our unique portfolio of assets to conduct tests that reflect real-life conditions.
We regularly participate in large-scale collaborative R&D and innovative commercial and publicly funded projects, amassing vast technical knowledge; our laboratory and testing facilities have also been invaluable to their success.
We play a key role in pulling together multiple players across industry, academia, and the supply chain and other catapults to participate in major Joint Industry Programmes (JIPs).
We are working with highly innovative companies rising to the cost reduction opportunities our industry presents, and are helping them to shape, test and demonstrate their ideas and turn them into high impact, market-ready solutions. We have launched a series of Innovation Challenges that aim to accelerate the path to commercialisation of well-focussed technology innovations.
