Scottish Wave, Tidal Research Project Gets GBP 1 M

The three year EcoWatt2050 project, is coordinated by the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS) and funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). It will use computer models developed in an earlier TeraWatt study to simulate the effects of extracting energy using wave and tidal renewable energy devices on the marine environment.
Led by Heriot Watt University, in partnership with the Universities of Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Strathclyde, Swansea, the Highlands and Islands, the National Oceanography Centre and Marine Scotland Science, EcoWatt2050 will provide a vital tool for addressing questions posed by the licensing authorities and decision makers about the potential siting of large scale marine renewable energy arrays.
