Ports: Energy

Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN HL3488, tabled on 16 November 2022

Wave energy technologies show promise but remain at a pre-commercial stage and cannot displace better established renewables in our energy mix. The Government monitors the situation and will consider how best to integrate wave with the Electricity Networks Strategic Framework.
