LCRI Marine is a collaboration of all the leading academic marine institutions in Wales. The project aims to enable, support and help build a sustainable marine energy sector in Wales. It provides the independent and world-class research essential to move the marine renewable energy industry forward.
They are involved in the development and application of tools which optimise the performance of the technology that recover energy from waves, tidal streams and tidal ranges around the Welsh coast.
In particular, they consider the likely effects that these devices have on the environment, such as their effect on seabed communities, sediment transport and marine wildlife.
