In early 2010, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) commisioned a film detailing the research challenges facing the SuperGen Marine Consortium. The film, featuring key academics in the fields of wave and tidal energy research, can be seen below.
The following paragraphs accompany the video on the EPSRC website:
The EPSRC funded SUPERGEN Marine Energy Research Consortium is tackling a wide range of challenges associated with wave and tidal power. Prototype devices exist for generating marine energy, but there is still a lot to learn about marine energy resources and ways to efficiently harness them and feed energy into networks.
This team is aiming to provide solutions to ensure marine energy can make a significant contribution to the sustainable energy mix.
