South West Marine Energy Park
A collaborative partnership between local and national government, Local
Enterprise Partnerships, technology developers, academia and industry
- A physical and geographic zone with priority focus for marine energy technology development, energy generation projects and industry growth
The geographic scope of the South West Marine Energy Park (MEP) extends from Bristol to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, with a focus around the ports, research facilities and industrial clusters found in Cornwall, Plymouth and Bristol. At the heart of the South West MEP is the access to the significant tidal, wave and offshore wind resources off the South West coast and in the Bristol Channel.
The core objective of the South West MEP is to create a positive business environment that will foster business collaboration, attract investment and accelerate the commercial development of the marine energy sector.
“The South West Marine Energy Park builds on
the region’s unique mix of renewable energy resource and home-grown
academic, technical and industrial expertise. Government will be
working closely with the South West MEP partnership to maximise
opportunities and support the Park’s future development. ”
Rt Hon Greg Barker MP, Minister of State, DECC
