Wave Energy Scotland provides access to world leading R&D in wave energy technology



People interested in tracking progress in developing Scotland’s wave energy technology can now access a new online library, launched today (July 20th) by Wave Energy Scotland (WES).

WES is taking an innovative approach to supporting the commercialisation of technology for the wave energy sector through a highly collaborative programme.


This brings together the best of industry and academia to develop projects in areas that have been identified as priorities for the sector, and likely to have a positive impact on the long term cost of energy.


In just over two years, WES has worked with 150 separate organisations across more than 50 projects in a range of technology areas, committing in excess of £24million funding in a range of technology areas.


As well as developing cutting edge technology, the WES objectives focus on sharing the result of projects. To that end the new online library includes information on research, knowledge capture and international collaborations.


It will help anyone interested in what Wave Energy Scotland’s projects are achieving, and the Intellectual Property (IP) that has been generated.
