Offshore energy catapult centre location announced

February 9, 2012

Right on schedule, Vince Cable announced today that the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult will be headquartered at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, with a second base at the National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec) in northeast England. According to the press release:

The national centre will focus on technologies for offshore wind, wave and tidal power and is designed to bridge the gap between university research and full commercialisation. It will have a UK wide remit, and build strong links with centres of excellence such as Wave Hub and the marine energy park in the South West of England.

Now we’re just waiting on announcement of the final two centres… Watch this space.
