SuperGen UK Centre for Marine Energy Research (UKCMER)
The first phase of the SuperGen Marine Energy Research Consortium commenced in October 2003 following the award of £2.6 million under the EPSRC's SUPERGEN Programme. The award funded research into marine renewable energy conversion and delivery.
This success led to the creation of the second phase SuperGen Marine Research Consortium, a 4 year, £5.5 million project which commenced in October 2007. Five core academic institutions are involved in the second consortium - The University of Edinburgh, Heriot Watt University, Lancaster University, Queens University Belfast and the University of Strathclyde - along with a number of affiliate institutions being awarded PhD studentship funds. The overall aim, while still generic, has evolved and is now directed towards increasing understanding of the device-sea interactions of energy converters from model-scale in the laboratory to full size in the open sea.
