Offshore Renewable Energy

Pelamis wave power generatorThe seas around Scotland have the potential to provide us with a sustainable, renewable energy source with:

  • Up to a 25% of Europe's tidal power and 10% of its wave power
  • Around 25% of the European offshore wind resource potential

The Scottish Government is firmly committed to the development of a successful marine renewable energy industry in Scotland. It has committed to achieving the EU 2020 target - 20% of EU's energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020 - through a stated target of meeting 100% of Scotland's electricity demand from renewable sources by 2020.
