Wave Hub Development
When it comes to harnessing the power of the sea, Cornwall has a distinct advantage. The Wave Hub aims to make use of the region’s natural resource of wave energy, connect it to the electricity grid to develop a demonstration site to be used for the development and testing of wave energy conversion devices.
The industry is still at a very early stage and these opportunities will enable the region to achieve a leading position in the technology, with worldwide application, as well as attracting inward investment.
Companies developing these technologies will be attracted to the South West by the consented, leased and grid connected site, and their presence will create opportunities for the region’s companies and research bodies to support the manufacture, deployment, operation and maintenance, and ongoing research activities of these companies.
