The South Coast is the only region with all renewable energy resources (wave, wind, tidal and solar) close to major ports and infrastructure. The Cluster has several sites to test and deploy wave and tidal devices in Cornwall, North Devon and the Isle of Wight. The industry is supported by a strong network of developers and an extensive supply- chain working with 32 research Institutions to develop new technology and devices. Plymouth company Witt Energy Ltd developed the ‘WITT,’ ground-breaking technology to capture motional energy found on land, sea and in the air, and convert it into electricity.
