New agreement to support marine energy development in China

06 Nov 2015

A memorandum of understanding signed by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) and several Chinese entities will support the development of a marine energy test site near Qingdao.

EMEC has now overseen more than 1,000 marine energy activities at its test site in Orkney, Scotland, giving it a unique ability to provide expertise in device deployment, grid connectivity, cable laying, data collection and monitoring.

The partnership will help China jumpstart its ocean power sector, officials say.
