The Scottish Government has today (July 6) awarded £13 million to five marine energy projects under its Wave and Tidal Energy: Research, Development and Demonstration Support (WATERS) fund.

The grants are to be used to help develop emerging energy technologies and improve the operation of marine renewables devices.

WATERS is a collaboration between the Scottish Government and business and economic growth agencies Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, with support from European Regional Development Funds.
