Government reaffirms its commitment for Wave Hub

Reflecting the Government’s commitment to developing low-carbon energy, Ministers have today reaffirmed their support for Wave Hub and to ensuring the UK secures maximum benefit from the facility in the future.

The UK is a global leader in wave technology and I look forward to Wave Hub leading the charge from Cornwall.

BIS Minister, Matthew Hancock

This is a vote of confidence in Wave Hub and the critical role we play in supporting the wave energy sector. We are working with Government and relevant organisations, such as the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, to deliver the Government’s long term aims and consider what wider services could add further value to the existing benefits of Wave Hub.

Claire Gibson, Managing Director of Wave Hub Ltd

Wave Hub continues to act as a catalyst for the development of the offshore marine energy industry in the region. Two wave devices have been successfully built and deployed in Cornwall and two of the Wave Hub customers have established offices in Falmouth and Pool. The Hayle Marine Renewables Business Park is also on track for completion this summer.
