Audio: Marine project launched


A pioneering multi-million pound project to develop marine renewable energy in peripheral and island communities was launched today at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth.

The £4m MERIFIC project is a collaboration between Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and Finistere in Brittany, and will identify and address specific opportunities and issues faced by outlying communities in exploiting marine energy resources.

It is currently estimated that by 2050, up to 50% of Europe’s electricity supply could be provided by renewable ocean energy generated off the Atlantic coast.

Kernowpods’ Matthew Clarke was at today’s conference on behalf of Business Cornwall, to find out more.
