Partners & Regional Engagement


We have strategic partnerships with organisations such as EMEC in Orkney, Wave Hub in Cornwall, The Crown Estate, the Energy Innovation Centre and the Carbon Trust, working together to bring new offshore renewable energy technology to commercial reality.

We also recognise that the development of offshore renewable energy presents significant economic opportunities for local and regional economies and with a number of central and local government and regional development agencies to drive forward innovation, economic benefit and cost reduction in offshore wind, wave and tide. Therefore, we are looking to establish new, strategic partnerships with regional organisations involved in innovation and economic development. See our regional engagement strategy.

Regional Engagement

Engaging with regional clusters and SMEs to accelerate the identification, development and commercialisation of innovative technology in offshore renewable energy is a key objective for ORE Catapult.

We are already working in collaboration with regional organisations involved in innovation and economic development in offshore renewable energy, and are looking to establish new strategic partnerships, investing resources to focus on SME-led innovation and to drive regional delivery.

This regional engagement strategy builds on direct discussions with Local Enterprise Partnerships, Economic Development bodies and Devolved Administrations across the UK over a number of months, and has been designed based on input from the regions.
