Hebridean Marine Energy Futures


The Hebridean Marine Energy Futures project aims to accelerate near and offshore renewable energy developments in the Outer Hebrides and wider Scotland.


A versatile group of scientists and engineers investigates questions around wave energy resource assessments, data acquisition, sensor deployment and wave forecasting in an area with one of the most energetic waters of Europe.

Additional wave energy research activities at Lews Castle College are focused on the electrical grid integration and interaction between wind and wave energy converters, and also on the mapping of both environmental constraints and opportunities in relation to energy developments.
