Offshore Renewables Joint Industry Programme (ORJIP) Ocean Energy

ORJIP Ocean Energy is a UK-wide collaborative programme of environmental research with the aim of reducing consenting risks for wave, tidal stream and tidal range projects.

Forward Look

The Forward Look includes a prioritised list of strategic research projects to address key EIA/HRA issues and sets out the purpose, required timing and broad scope of the research projects necessary to meet ORJIP Ocean Energy’s overall aim.

The objective of the Forward Look is to inform the focus of ORJIP Ocean Energy; ensuring that research is focused on priority consenting EIA/HRA issues for the wave and tidal sectors, projects are coordinated to avoid duplication of effort, and key information and data gaps are addressed.  The Forward Look builds upon the work previously undertaken by Aquatera; incorporating evolving sector needs and consideration of recent completed research as well as planned and ongoing research.  It should be noted that whilst the previous Aquatera report focused on the wave and tidal current sectors, the Forward Look also includes tidal range.

The intention is for the Forward Look to be updated and reissued periodically as the programme progresses.
