Marine-i has agreed to support a year-long research programme to identify the potential for wave, tidal and floating wind technologies to be deployed around the Isles of Scilly.
The project will build a new databank of wave and tidal resource data from around the Isles of Scilly, including data sets on wind speed, wave height, wave period, tidal stream velocities and tidal range parameters. This databank will enable the Isles of Scilly to engage with technology developers to scope new renewable energy projects for the Isles of Scilly. This new initiative is being led by three businesses: Isles of Scilly Community Venture, a not-for-profit company focused on developing projects that will help Scilly become fit for the future, Waves4Power and Planet A Energy.
