SuperGen UKCMER are proud to announce that all nine SuperGen Marine Grand Challenge projects have now commenced. The SuperGen Marine Grand Challenge projects were funded in response to two £3 million calls investing in marine energy research for today's most pressing issues, as well as addressing challenges associated with meeting marine energy's 2050 targets.
Details of all the Grand Challenge projects are now available on the UKCMER website. You can access them directly using the links under the "SG UKCMER" drop down menu at the top of the page. The SuperGen UKCMER description page has also been updated to include links to the projects. You can access the page via the following link:
Finally, we would like to inform you that the OES International Vision for Ocean Energy, which is listed on our website, recieved an update in October 2012. Accordingly, we have updated our own links and to download the current document please go to the Reports page.
The presentations and posters from the first SuperGen UKCMER Annual Assembly, held in October 2012, have been made available for download. The assembly was hosted at The University of Plymouth for the first time in order to coincide with the opening of the new COaST (Coastal, Ocean and Sediment Transport) laboratory.

QEII Centre, London, UK
Celebrating its 10th year and now a two day event, the industry’s premier annual wave and tidal event will gather over 500 industry professionals and 50 exhibiting companies to Westminster’s QEII Conference Centre.
The UK is currently the global leader in marine energy with more wave and tidal stream devices installed than the rest of the world combined. Do not miss your opportunity to join the debate on key issues, innovation and best practice. The conference programme will focus on many key areas including:
- Attracting finance
- Cost reduction strategies
- Political support issues
- Technical challenges
- Grid availability

Due to the date change of the official opening of Plymouth University's new marine building, we have rearranged the date of the Supergen UK Centre For Marine Energy Research Annual Assembly to remain aligned with the opening.
The new date for the Assembly will be Monday 29th October when we will showcase a range of research highlights from the third phase of SuperGen and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) marine energy programme.
The official opening of the new marine building, containing the new COaST (Coastal, Ocean and Sediment Transport) Laboratory, will take place at 10.30am on Tuesday 30th October.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused and we do hope you can still join us for these important events.
