1 HYDROGRAPHIC SOCIETY 4 DECEMBER 2007 NICK HARRINGTON, BSc, MRICS

2 WHY RENEWABLE ENERGY? Reduction of emissions, Kyoto targets Security of supply Cost

3 MARINE ENERGY Tidal Barrage Tidal Stream Wave Energy –Shoreline –Seabed –Shallow water –Deep water

4 WHY IN SOUTH WEST? Strong wave and tidal resource Existing marine sector Academic base Opportunities in new industry

5 WAVE POWER LEVELS Source: World Energy Council website - based on Claesson, (1987)

6 TIDAL RESOURCE

7 WAVE RESOURCE

8 STRONG EXISTING GRID

9 COSTS OF ELECTRICITY GENERATION Source: PB Power “Powering the Nation” March 2006

10 WAVE HUB – UK ROUTE TO COMMERCIALISATION R&D Initial prototype Refined prototype Pre- commercial device Market entry with commercial product Market penetration Demonstration NaREC Wave Hub EMEC

11 WAVE HUB PROVIDES Consented sea area Grid connected 5MW per berth Monitoring and testing Power purchase agreement Opportunities to collaborate Access to suppliers’ research base
