New information network will support the development of marine renewable energy

We delight in the wonderful views and opportunities for leisure provided by Wales’ spectacular coastline. But being surrounded on three sides by water also offers other opportunities- to provide us with a sustainable source of energy, and in the process create employment opportunities.

SEACAMS 2 a £17 M three year project at Bangor and Swansea universities, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, is an investment in the potential offered by the marine economy and marine renewable energy.  Through SEACAMS, companies wanting to harness the sea’s power and create a sustainable marine energy industry in Wales will be able to access vital research support they need if they are to be able to progress with their multi-million pound developments.
