Supporting marine renewable energy development and commercial deployment in Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Plymouth

Offshore Renewables Development Programme

"Marine renewable energy is a global market opportunity for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly... our aim is to smooth the path to commercialisation for marine renewable energy developers and ensure that we maintain a significant competitive advantage in a sector that has enormous potential for our region."

Chris Pomfret, Chairman of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership

Why Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Plymouth?

The South West has some of the best natural resources in the world. Following significant financial investment, Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Plymouth (CIoS&P) has secured a distinctive range of demonstrator and test facilities, world leading academic expertise and a growing cluster of supply chain businesses.

This cluster has the potential to support the necessary drive towards commercialisation and ultimately secure CIoS&Ps position as an area of regional, national and international significance, in an increasingly competitive global environment. Read more about facilties >
