Tidal wave of MPs unite in support of UK marine power
Earlier this month 91 Members of Parliament from all the main parties signed a letter to the UK Energy Minister Claire Perry, urging her to put measures in place to ensure that the UK capitalises on its role as a world leader in wave and tidal power.
Conservative Member of Parliament Richard Graham, the Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Marine Energy said: “Right now people are clamouring for more action on climate change. Marine energy provides a perfect opportunity for the Government to show that it is listening.”
In a follow-up article in magazine Professional Engineering Minesto’s CEO Dr Martin Edlund was interviewed on the potential impact of the proposed changes brought forward by the MPs in the letter. Because of the size of the market, it is essential to commercialise multiple technologies, Martin Edlund said. “Competition needs to be there. It’s not a way of promoting one company or one solution, it’s about giving multiple proposals the ability to prove themselves commercially viable.”
