Sharing engineering know how, policy and good practice

Identifying marine energy hotspots, prioritising island communities

Investigating the needs for energy generation and distribution

Encouraging business opportunities

Engaging with communities, helping them to see the need for renewable energy

The maritime regions of Cornwall and Finistère are in a great position to benefit from the expected growth in marine renewable energy. Their peninsula nature and exposure to the Atlantic Ocean provides significant wave, wind and tidal resources.

The MERiFIC (Marine Energy in Far Peripheral and Island Communities) project brought together partners from Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and Finistère with the Parc Naturel Marin d’Iroise to work on the development of marine energy as a key priority for development, with anticipated economic, social and environmental benefits.

The project ran from September 2011 to June 2013.


MERiFIC has identified the key areas that are crucial in the successful development of the marine renewable energy industry.
