Scotland's wave energy industry buoyed by Mocean Energy and AWS Ocean milestones

A perfect storm is brewing in and around Scotland's wave energy industry which, if its potential is harnessed, could make Scotland a key player in the global renewables economy.

Wave Energy Scotland managing director, Tim Hurst, said: "We have three things merging here which are the real need for low carbon technologies, new technology being demonstrated and the prospect of a market support mechanism being announced later this year.

"We have a technology which can solve our energy problems and we could have a mechanism which will create a market for it with the UK government considering changes to the Contract for Difference (CfD) market support mechanism that is appropriate for wave and tidal energy.

"There is also a commitment from governments across the world to achieve net zero."
