ABPmer has hosted the widely acclaimed Atlas of UK Marine Renewable Energy Resources since June 2011. The online Atlas now benefits from being migrated to ABPmer's WEBvision platform.
NEW to WEBvision is the addition of high resolution wave and tidal data for the Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters Strategic Area, a study commissioned by The Crown Estate.
The Atlas represents the most detailed regional description of potential marine energy resources in UK waters ever completed to date at a national scale, and will be used to help guide policy and planning decisions for future site leasing rounds.
The study was completed as part of the Offshore Energy Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) which is presently operated by DECC. For more information about the SEA programme please refer to: https://www.gov.uk/offshore-energy-strategic-environmental-assessment-sea-an-overview-of-the-sea-process.
