Abstract: 

In 2012, English Heritage commissioned Fjordr Ltd to prepare guidance on the interaction between wave and tidal energy generation and the historic environment[1]. Partnership funding from Historic Scotland and Cadw enabled the guidance to encompass Scotland and Wales. This paper describes the key findings that emerged from a programme of extensive preparatory research and discussions with developers, regulators and archaeologists across Great Britain. It describes some effects of wave and tidal energy on the historic environment, with a particular focus on Scotland, and identifies options and best practice for ensuring that such development is undertaken sustainably.
