The MEC is the trade association and representative body for the UK’s tidal stream and wave energy industries.
Established in 2018 the MEC is committed to realising the potential of tidal stream and wave energy, to support a secure, cost-effective transition to net zero, and make the UK attractive to renewable investors.
The MEC has played a key role in influencing the external policy environment, whilst proactively defending the interests of tidal stream and wave energy. This includes securing the ringfence for tidal stream in the UK’s last renewable auction, identifying and improving investment and R&D opportunities, and working collaboratively with key stakeholders to maintain the UK’s leadership in ocean energy.
MEC has been instrumental in improving the policy landscape and outlook for the sector through coordinating engagement and communicating clearly to the UK Government, devolved administrations and other key stakeholders with a unified voice.
