Marine Energy in Far Peripheral Island Communities (MERiFIC)



Marine Energy in Far Peripheral Island Communities (MERiFIC) project partners worked together to identify the specific opportunities and issues faced by peripheral and island communities in exploiting marine renewable energy resources with the aim of developing tool kits and resources for use by other similar communities. The project developed and delivered joint activities between France and the UK, looking at issues such as:

  • Marine energy resource assessment/mapping;
  • Policy issues and potential barriers to marine energy development;
  • Business and commercial opportunities for island/mainland communities;
  • Island/mainland interaction on appropriate infrastructure and Community and stakeholder engagement with key groups (e.g. fishing, wave farm developers, and investors).
