Wave Energy Scotland (WES) is driving the search for innovative solutions to the technical challenges facing the wave energy sector. Through our competitive procurement programme, we support a range of projects focused on the key systems and sub-systems of Wave Energy Converters. The aim is to produce reliable technology which will result in cost effective wave energy generation.
WES was formed in 2014 at the request of the Scottish Government and is a subsidiary of Highlands and Islands Enterprise. The aim of WES is to ensure that Scotland maintains a leading role in the development of marine energy.
Through our programmes, we have already awarded £24.6M to 56 projects and worked with 150 separate organisations, across 11 different countries.
Innovation Call - Control Systems - Closes Soon
Advanced control systems have the potential to play a vital role in the realisation of cost-effective Wave Energy generation technology. WES wishes to realise this potential through the innovation call for Control Systems, starting with funding for Feasibility Studies and progressing to design, development and demonstration activities.
Relevant technology transfer opportunities exist in many industrial sectors. Organisations from sectors such as Robotics, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace, Automotive, Mining, Offshore and Sub-Sea vessel stability & manoeuvring could all make valuable contributions. WES hopes to support collaboration between academia, industry, wave energy specialists and new entrants to tackle this exciting control system challenge.
The webinar, script, slides with questions and answers are now available on the PCS website.
Apply on the Public Contract Scotland website by 12.00 June 12th.
