Cardiff-based Tidal Energy wins Carbon Trust grant

The Carbon Trust has offered a grant of up to £390,000 through its Entrepreneurs Fast Track service to Cardiff-based Tidal Energy.

The grant represents up to 60 per cent of the funding needed to monitor the environmental impacts associated with the deployment of Wales¹s first tidal stream renewable energy device at Ramsey Sound, off the Pembrokeshire coast.

The findings will then be publically disseminated for the benefit of the wider marine energy industry.

Earlier this year, Tidal Energy obtained consent from the Welsh government and the Department of Energy and Climate Change to install its 1.2MW DeltaStream device in Welsh waters.
