    The European Marine Energy Centre is the first and only centre of its kind in the world to provide developers of both wave and tidal energy converters – technologies that generate electricity by harnessing the power of waves and tidal streams – with purpose-built, accredited open-sea testing facilities.

    Beyond technology testing and verification, EMEC provides a wide range of consultancy and research services. EMEC is at the forefront in the development of international standards for marine energy, and is forging alliances with other countries, exporting its knowledge around the world to stimulate the development of a global marine renewables industry.

    EMEC also operate two scale test sites where smaller scale devices, or those at an earlier stage in their development, can gain real sea experience in less challenging conditions than those experienced at the grid-connected wave and tidal test sites.

    EMEC operates to relevant test laboratory standards (ISO17025) enabling the Centre to provide independently-verified performance assessments, and is accredited to ISO/IEC 17020 offering independent technology verification on marine energy converters and their sub-systems.
