Wave and tidal energy in the UK: conquering challenges, generating growth
Wave and tidal energy in the UK: conquering challenges, generating growth

1st February 2013

Organisation(s): RenewableUK

Topic(s): Law and regulation, Marine energy, Policy, Renewables

As a generation sector, wave and tidal is one that attracts significant support and interest from the public, politicians and business community. There is a clear understanding that to deliver on the potential of this sector is required a long term programme with industry and government working closely together. This report aims to set out how best Government and industry can best work together to manage risks, turning challenges into opportunities. It is also a demonstration of the maturity of the sector in facing up to these challenges by providing realistic, hard-headed analysis of what industry must do to play its part in overcoming them and delivering the wider benefits offered by this sector.

Renewable electricity futures study. Volume 2: renewable electricity generation and storage technologies
Renewable electricity futures study. Volume 2: renewable electricity generation and storage technologies

1st June 2012

Organisation(s): National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

Topic(s): Biofuels / Bioenergy, Geothermal energy, Hydroelectricity, Marine energy, Renewables, Solar energy, Wind energy

The Renewable Electricity Futures Study (RE Futures) is an initial investigation of the extent to which renewable energy supply can meet the electricity demands of the contiguous United States over the next several decades. This volume - Volume 2 - describes the renewable generation and storage technologies included in the study. Each technology is introduced, followed by estimates of resource availability, a characterisation of the technology, a list of output characteristics and grid service possibilities, a description of deployment, and a discussion of barriers and issues.

Review of the generation costs and deployment potential of renewable electricity technologies in the UK
Review of the generation costs and deployment potential of renewable electricity technologies in the UK

1st October 2011

Organisation(s): Arup, Department of Energy and Climate Change, UK Government

Topic(s): Biofuels / Bioenergy, Economics, Fuel switching, Geothermal energy, Hydroelectricity, Marine energy, Renewables, Solar energy, Wind energy

Arup was appointed by the United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in October 2010 to look at the deployment potential and generation costs of renewable electricity technologies in the UK up to 2030, taking into account sensitivities as to the range of cost inputs, investor behaviour and barriers to deployment. Arup was supported on cost data gathering exercises for some technologies by Ernst and Young (E&Y).

Building a low carbon economy: the UK's innovation challenge
Building a low carbon economy: the UK's innovation challenge

19th July 2010

Organisation(s): Committee on Climate Change (CCC)

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Economics, Energy efficiency, Law and regulation, Marine energy, Nuclear fission, Offshore wind, Policy, Renewables, Use and storage (CCUS), Wind energy

In order to build a low carbon economy and meet carbon budgets, the UK will need access to new technologies. This requires public sector investment in all stages of the innovation process from Research, through Development and Demonstration to Deployment (RDD&D).

This report considers the effectiveness of current policy measures and institutional arrangements to deliver the technologies required to meet the UK’s 2050 emissions target.
