Charting a successful passage for Marine Renewables

With some of Europe’s best wave and tidal resources, Orkney is playing a global role in the development of marine renewable energy.

As the home of EMEC, the European Marine Energy Centre, more wave and tidal energy devices have already been deployed in Orkney waters than at any other single site in the world.

Organisations like EMEC, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Orkney Islands Council are working closely with Orkney companies to foster the evolution of this new industry as it moves towards the commercial deployment of wave and tidal technologies.
