Pathway to EMEC

Each device that progresses from the initial concept, through to testing full scale at our wave and tidal facilities follows a unique route.

The numbers next to each stage reflect the corresponding Technology Readiness Levels, which is a measurement to assess the maturity of evolving technologies.

Below is an overview of this pathway:
