Mauritius and Australia signed yesterday in Port Louis an agreement on Assessing Wave Energy and Micro Grid in Mauritius.

The commercialisation of marine energy generation in the UK has been made clearer with the development of a 'renewables roadmap' for the Cornish peninsula region.

Wave energy in Scotland will be boosted by £14.3m in funding over the next 13 months, thanks to new funding from the Scottish Government

The evolution of technologies that harness the waves and tides for generating electricity is taking longer than hoped and costing more money than expected, a report showed.

The Crown Estate, manager of the UK seabed, has confirmed leasing agreements for 11 new wave and tidal energy sites across Scotland, England and Wales.

China plans to build three marine renewable-energy trial parks by 2016, to help speed up the commercial expansion of the wave and tidal power industry, a senior official said.

Wave energy conversion and ocean thermal energy conversion are two potentially significant sources of renewable energy that are available to help ADB's developing member countries reduce their dependence on fossil-fuel based energy generation and bolster energy security.

A new survey report has revealed that the majority of the public believe the Government should support the construction of more renewable energy sources like solar, wave and tidal power.

Variations in nearshore wave power at four shallowwater locations along the east and west coast of India are examined based on the measured wave data for one-year period. The study shows that along the west coast of India, 83–85% of the annual wave power is during the summer monsoon period (June–September), whereas at Visakhapatnam (on the east coast), 55% of the annual wave power is during the summer monsoon period. Along Puducherry coast in the east, wave power is relatively less with maximum value of 31.8 kW m–1.

Without a sufficient level of support from the Government, Britain risks surrendering its world lead in marine energy, according to a report released today by RenewableUK.
