Marine energy technology development receives boost with partnership

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney and Italian multinational renewable energy corporation Enel Green Power SpA (EGP) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of encouraging knowledge sharing in marine energy technology development and performance assessment.

Announced on 5 September, the partnership will drive forward collaborations in marine energy demonstration projects and address a gap in independent marine energy testing against international standards.

Rob Flynn, International Development Manager at EMEC said: “EMEC is very happy to collaborate with EGP on supporting marine energy development. As an independent test lab, EMEC is at the cutting edge of assessing marine energy technologies. EGP is a global leader in renewables, and with first-rate technology due diligence processes. This project will help us learn from each other and drive the marine energy sector forward”.
