Response to Marine SEA

Release Date: Jun 29, 2007

The Council’s Economic Development Service welcomes the production of the SEA as a significant step towards the emergence of a Strategy to Support Marine Energy, and also wishes to express thanks to the Scottish Executive and to Faber Maunsell and Metoc for presenting the report in Orkney on 9th May.

The renewable energy industry, and in particular in the areas of academic and research and development activity in the marine energy sector, presently makes a significant contribution to Orkney’s economy and the Council welcomes the Executive’s continuing commitment to the sector. The Council has invested in the development of that expertise and is committed to the further sustainable growth of the sector in the coming years.
