Marine Energy Wales
In 2016, Marine Energy Wales was launched to represent the marine energy industry at a national level and drive forward development as Wales seeks to become a global leader. Marine Energy Wales was established and is administered by the team at Marine Energy Pembrokeshire. Marine Energy Wales has evolved from the success of MEP and formalises MEP’s pan-Wales work.
The aim of Marine Energy Wales is to create a thriving and diverse sustainable marine energy industry which will make a significant contribution to a low carbon economy. The benefits of this industry will be felt throughout the entire supply chain creating green sustainable jobs, growth and skills for Wales. MEP continues with a regional focus on Pembrokeshire, alongside Morlais in Anglesey.
At the launch of Marine Energy Wales in Brussels in October Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure Ken Skates AM said:
“The formation of this pan-Wales body to drive forward the industry and encourage collaboration between all the interested parties is very timely and very welcome. The renewable marine energy sector has real potential for Wales which is a key location for the development and deployment of new innovative technologies. We need to ensure we are in pole position to maximise these opportunities, attract investment and create jobs and Marine Energy Wales has an important role to play in helping us achieve this.”
