Results - UKERC Marine (Wave and Tidal Current) Renewable Energy Technology Roadmap (2008)
Markus Mueller, Henry Jeffrey, University of Edinburgh
This document is a technology roadmap: it provides a guide for mobilising the wave and tidal
energy community in the UK down a deployment pathway towards a target of achieving 2GW installed capacity by 2020.
The roadmap is aimed at providing a focused and coherent approach to technology development in the marine sector,
whilst taking into account the needs of other stakeholders. The successful implementation of the technology roadmap
depends upon a number of complex interactions between commercial, political and technical aspects. Although this roadmap
is technically focused it also considers policy, environmental and commercialisation aspects of the marine energy sector,
in order to display and put in context these wider influences.
