RenewableUK is the trade and professional body for the UK's
renewable energy industry. With over 650 members, it is the
UK's largest renewable energy trade association.
Our Public Affairs Manager Neil Davidson is a founder member of
RenewableUK's Marine Strategy Group, which works to promote the
development and implementation of government policy, which supports
the UK's marine energy industry.
In addition to its government lobbying activities, RenewableUK
also works to promote and provide information on the UK's renewable
energy industry to the media and the public, whilst also acting as
a central point of information for its members.
As an active member of RenewableUK, we have contributed to a
number of consultations and industry reports, which aim to ensure
policymakers understand the full potential of the marine energy
industry and to give industry-wide policy recommendations to
accelerate growth in the sector.
RenewableUK was formerly known as the British Wind Energy
Association (BWEA). The organisation changed its name to
RenewableUK in March 2010 to reflect the diversification of the
UK's renewable energy industry.
In the next five years the UK has a unique opportunity to establish itself as the global centre of the marine energy industry. RenewableUK is working closely with industry leaders such as Aquamarine Power to ensure this opportunity becomes reality. David Krohn, Wave and Tidal Development Manager
