We occupy a unique position, having links with a range of different developers, academic institutions and regulatory bodies while remaining independent. We are currently working with developers and experts in order to expand our research agenda to cover a range of industry-related environmental and operational issues. We join regulators, government and developers alike in endeavouring to make full use of the device testing stages of the developing wave and tidal energy industries as they evolve from pre-prototype design through to commercial viability.
We facilitate two working groups: The Developer Research Forum (DRF) and Monitoring Advisory Group (MAG).
We are keen to engage with researchers and provide input to individual research projects as appropriate to the test facility. To contact us regarding this, please complete and return an Academic Request form below:
