The Supergen ORE Hub and ORJIP Ocean Energy invites you to a workshop on Friday 29 January 13:30 - 18:00 GMT to be hosted online alongside the Marine Energy Wales Conference titled “De-risking consenting of tidal arrays – are we nearly there yet?"

With key speakers from the Marine Energy Council, Natural Resources Wales, ORJIP Ocean Energy, the Welsh Consenting Strategic Advisory Group, OES Environmental and key tidal energy developers in Wales, this workshop will focus on the key environmental consenting risks that remain within the tidal energy industry and how we can work together to address these risks and streamline the consenting process in Wales.

The tidal energy industry is at a highly significant moment in its development after more than 15 years of research and innovation funded by the UK government and industry, with direct involvement of regulators and their advisors, to facilitate device development and testing as well as evidence and tools to facilitate consenting. Nevertheless, the barriers in the UK to moving forward from single devices to viable commercial arrays are forcing industry to seek development sites overseas elsewhere in Europe, Canada and South East Asia and so there is significant pressure to collaborate over resolving the remaining issues to progressing projects in the UK.
