ETI/UKERC Marine Energy Technology Roadmap October 2010


Author(s) Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) and the UK Energy Research Center (UKERC)
Abstract Technology roadmaps are tools that provide a framework for stimulating innovation in specific technology areas in order to achieve a long term vision, target or goal. The aim of this roadmap is to facilitate the establishment of a commercially viable marine energy sector in the UK, supported by an extensive supply chain, thereby building the skills and capacity necessary to enable the sector to make a material and cost-effective contribution to the delivery of the UK’s energy and climate change goals. This Marine Energy Technology Roadmap, jointly developed by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) and the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) represents a major update to the ETI/UKERC 2010 Marine Energy Technology Roadmap, a document created to identify and prioritise the key technology and deployment issues faced by the marine renewable energy sector in the UK. This update has primarily been created to reflect the changes and advancements within the marine energy sector that have taken place since 2010, but it also recognises the engineering challenges that remain and that must be overcome to enable the industry to progress rapidly to early array deployments. This document is complementary to, and should be read in conjunction, with the Marine Energy Technology Innovation Needs Assessment2 (TINA) published by the Low Carbon Innovation Coordination Group (LCICG)3 in August 2012.
