The UK has one of the best offshore wind resources in the world, comprising 50% of Europe’s tidal energy and 35% of its wave energy. Through this programme, NERC supports partnerships between the academic research base and the offshore renewable energy sector to help capitalise on this resource.
In pursuing its remit, NERC invests in world-leading research, training and innovation across the energy system to provide society with evidence and expertise to inform decision-making.
Through this programme, NERC continues to support the development of partnerships between the academic research base and the offshore renewable energy sector through innovation workshops. Opportunities for cross-sector innovation are also being explored in conjunction with the Innovation Programme in Oil and Gas.
