Renewable energy will play a significant role in the supply of electricity into the foreseeable future. There is a growing realisation of the enormous resource potential of marine renewable energy in the Atlantic Area region of the EU. However, a technological leap is required to deliver this form of energy on a scale which meets demand. It will require integration of a range of science, engineering and environmental expertise and technologies, together with the involvement of industry and all of the key stakeholders. The mix and balance of different energy sources will be as important in the future to the sustainable spatial development of Europe as the development and exploitation of each type of energy itself, and the MAREN project concentrates on getting that balance right.
