The Offshore Renewables Joint Industry Programme (ORJIP) Ocean Energy has launched a website supporting early array deployments for the wave and tidal sector.

The ORJIP website features background information on the programme and identifies details of the priority environmental research projects that have been agreed by industry, regulators and SNCBs.

The ORJIP Ocean Energy initiative announced in March is a UK-wide collaborative programme of environmental research which aims to reducing consenting risks for wave, tidal stream and tidal range projects. Its goal is also to reduce project risk by creating a strategic, coordinated and prioritised approach to monitoring and research which is endorsed by industry, regulators and SNCBs.

The Crown Estate, Marine Scotland and Welsh Government are to provide funding for the project to the ORJIP Ocean Energy secretariat run jointly by the European Marine Energy Centre, Aquatera and MarineSpace.

The ORJIP secretariat, who co-ordinate and share the information, wants to identify project developers with sites that could be used to host some of the studies together with regulators, SNCB’s or academic partners to take the studies forward. The secretariat is exploring funding opportunities for the projects and will use the website and the programme mailing list to highlight them.

ORJIP will be promoting the initiative at events and conferences including Ocean Energy Europe 2015 in Dublin and the Bristol Tidal Energy Forum in October, and Marine Renewables Canada and ITES in November.
