Ocean Power Innovation Networks

27 October 2020

Free support offered to Forth & Tay Offshore member companies from the Ocean Power Innovation Network (OPIN).


Technology Assessment Process (TAP)
This project offers developers and businesses support to progress their innovation for the the ocean energy sector. TAP provides a roadmap for risk reduction, development and commercialisation, as well as independent evidence for investors. Wave, tidal, floating wind and floating solar are all innovation areas supported by OPIN.

Collaborative Innovation Groups (CIGS)

A CIG is a small group of SMEs, often working with research entities and / or large companies, to solve specific problems which are barriers to deployment of ocean energy and offer opportunities for new products, services or markets. CIGs focus on challenges which cannot or have not been solved by one SME alone and aim to include complementary skills and expertise.
