To ask the President of the Board of Trade what progress has been made, in conjunction with the European Communities, in establishing an offshore wave power generator project.
§ Mr. Eggar
Two United Kingdom proposals, from the Queen's university Belfast, and from Applied Research and Technology Ltd. (ART), of Inverness, for wave energy pilot plants with a power rating between 0.4MW and 2.0MW have been offered support from the Commission of the European Communities' JOULE programme. Both received assistance from the energy technology support unit (ETSU), acting on behalf of DTI, in preparing their proposals.
