Wave Energy Scotland - driving the development of wave technology
Wave Energy Scotland (WES) is taking an innovative approach to supporting the development of wave technology by managing the most extensive technology programme of its kind in the sector.
It is funding the development of innovative technologies to produce low cost, efficient and reliable components and subsystems which will form the basis of the cost effective generation of wave energy in Scotland.
WES was established as part of Highlands and Islands Enterprise, at the request of the Scottish Government, during December 2014.
WES has a budget of £10m until the end of the financial year in 2017. The budget for the following years is expected to be similar but is subject to parliamentary scrutiny and approval.
