Launched: The South West Marine Energy Park

The South West Marine Energy Park, which aims to accelerate the commercialisation of marine power, will stretch from Bristol to Cornwall and as far as the Isles of Scilly. Around the UK, DECC estimates that our seas have the potential to generate up to 27GW of power by 2050, equivalent to the power generated from eight coal-fired power stations. The park was launched this week by climate change minister Greg Barker in Bristol, in partnership with national and local government, Local Enterprise Partnerships, the Universities of Plymouth and Exeter and industry including Cornwall’s famous Wave Hub.
