Four organisations have joined forces to develop wave and tidal power in response to the government's £50m marine development fund. The University of Edinburgh, Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney and the New and Renewable Energy Centre in Northumberland have formed the UK Centre for Marine Renewable Energy to tap into the £50m.

The partnership aims to provide properly equipped research, development, test and certification base to help the marine energy industry provide significant renewable energy from naturally occurring wave and tidal movements.

Minister for energy, Stephen Timms, said: “I was confident that the government's announcement of the £50m marine development fund would stimulate this industry because wave and tidal devices are very promising.”
