The MERiFIC project sought to advance the adoption of marine energy across the two regions of Cornwall and Finistère and the island communities of le Parc Naturel Marin d’Iroise and the Isles of Scilly.

Project partners worked together to identify the specific opportunities and issues faced by peripheral and island communities in exploiting marine renewable energy resources with the aim of developing tool kits and resources for use by other similar communities.

This EU research project aimed to promote the right economic, political and physical infrastructure to attract investment and accelerate the commercialisation of the industry.

The project built and delivered joint activities between the two regions, looking at issues such as
• Marine energy resource assessment/mapping
• Policy issues and potential barriers to marine energy development
• Business and commercial opportunities for island/mainland communities
• Island/mainland interaction on appropriate infrastructure and Community and stakeholder engagement with key groups (e.g. fishing, wave farm developers, and investors)

As part of the project a best practice procurement guide was produced, which we strongly recommend reading. This in-depth report includes clarification of emerging MRE opportunities and advice on mapping your position within the supply chain, winning new business and the tendering process.
