Supergen ORE Hub Launches Offshore Renewables Research Tool

The Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Hub has launched a web-based tool that brings together UK offshore renewable energy research.

Research Landscape comprises a series of research themes, challenges and opportunities faced by the offshore renewables community, which were gathered through a series of consultation events with over 180 partners.

The interactive tool showcases current research across all three ORE technology sectors, including the hub’s own core research, as well as that supported through its Flexible Fund.

According to the hub, it also encourages UK academics to submit relevant research projects and papers for inclusion.

“We are delighted to be launching the Supergen ORE Hub’s Research Landscape tool, which will guide and strengthen the focus of academic effort in Offshore Renewable Energy,” Prof. Deborah Greaves, Director of the Supergen ORE Hub.

“The platform will promote offshore wind, wave and tidal research to raise awareness and maximise its impact by enhancing collaborations between academia, industry and government.” 

The Supergen ORE Hub was established in July last year with GBP 5 million from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and was awarded a further GBP 4 million this June.

This July, the hub awarded UK universities with nearly GBP 1 million to support research projects on offshore renewable energy in the first round of its Flexible Fund.
