Four ocean energy developers are to be awarded a total of £2 million development funding by Wave Energy Scotland after successfully competing to the second phase of a technology programme. The funding will support further design, modelling and testing of technologies being developed to help commercialise the Scottish wave energy sector. This brings the total investment by the organisation in Scottish wave energy technology development to £11.8 million across 39 projects in less than two years. But while sea-surface, wave-power technologies are struggling to establish themselves following the financial sinking of Pelamis, sea-bed surface tidal energy is striding ahead, with Atlantis Resources plc aiming for first-power from its Pentland Firth Meygen project next year.
