Established in 2003, EMEC is the world’s first centre to provide developers of both wave and tidal energy converters with purpose-built, accredited open-sea testing facilities. With 13 grid-connected test berths, there have been more OE converters deployed at EMEC than any other single site in the world, with developers attracted from around the globe to prove what is achievable in some of the harshest marine environments. EMEC is now looking at scaling-up OE.

Thematic priorities:
