Marine Energy Wales has signed an agreement with Marine Renewables Canada to share knowledge and support the development of marine energy.

The two organizations have been driving the development of marine energy in their respective nations, and the agreement demonstrates the commitment to a worldwide marine energy industry and the economic and low carbon opportunities associated with this emerging sector, Marine Energy Wales said.

David Jones, Director of Marine Energy Wales, said: “The ultimate goal is to create a new low carbon global industry, where skills and knowledge are exportable worldwide. Collaborating with Marine Renewables Canada and sharing experiences will be a real benefit moving forward.”

Although divided by the Atlantic Ocean, Canada and Wales share many common qualities and this new collaborative approach will aim to build on the work that has already been accomplished by each.

Elisa Obermann, Executive Director of Marine Renewables Canada, said: “As a new industry, marine renewable energy still faces many challenges – not just in Canada, but across the globe. By working together, Marine Renewables Canada and Marine Energy Wales can help industry collaborate on key issues, build partnerships, and share information that will support advancement of the global industry.”
