Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult forum

The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult forum - a collaboration between the Technology Strategy Board, the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult consortium partners and the Energy Knowledge Transfer Network - will be the main forum for engagement and discussions with businesses and academics and other stakeholders  interested in the establishment of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.  

 
This forum will also be used as the main communication channel on the process and progress and you are strongly encouraged to join the group.

Background (Last update: 2 April 2012):
 
The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult will enable UK business to research, test and measure the application of new technologies and materials, building on the strong track record of innovation in offshore renewable energy undertaken in the UK over many years. It will also help the UK achieve its target of generating 15% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.
 
In its recently published UK Renewable Energy Roadmap, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) predicts that this could mean the UK installing 18GW offshore wind capacity by 2020 and 400MW of tidal and wave power. 
 
The global market for wind, wave and tidal power is predicted to exceed £64bn by 2050 and UK businesses are expected to gain a 12% share of the offshore wind industry and a 15% share of wave and tidal markets. 
 
Following an open competition, the Technology Strategy Board selected a single consortium bid from the Carbon Trust, National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec), and Ocean Energy Innovation to run the Catapult. In February 2012 the Technology Strategy Board announced that the Catapult would have its primary location in Glasgow, Scotland, with a second site in the North East of England (Northumberland). It is expected to open for business in the summer of 2012.
 
The Catapult will receive up to £10m a year over five years from the Technology Strategy Board. Its focus will be on technologies applicable to offshore wind, and tidal and wave power. 
 
The UK has world-leading expertise in offshore engineering and understanding of the seabed and marine environment. It has given us a worldwide reputation in offshore facilities and makes the UK an excellent base for offshore research and development. 
 
The Catapult will work with the world-class UK research and innovation community in offshore wind, tidal and wave, and the growing UK offshore renewable energy industry, and will build strong links to centres of excellence, such as the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Wave Hub, and the recently announced marine energy park in the South West of England. 
 
It will establish the strong international links required to facilitate the commercialisation of new technologies and will also forge long-term relationships with the European Commission through active involvement in both its current and future framework programmes.
 
A delivery plan for the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult will be developed over the next few months with the aim of opening the centre in summer 2012.
