A Franco-Scottish alliance has been formed to speed up the deployment of commercial tidal energy schemes in both countries. Edinburgh-headquartered Nova Innovation and Sabella, of Quimper in Brittany, north-west France, have pledged to work together to drive down project costs. They said their partnership was sparked by the European Commission’s target of delivering 1 gigawatt of marine energy capacity by 2030.

Scottish tidal energy developer Nova Innovation and its French counterpart Sabella have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to accelerate development of their tidal energy sites in UK and France. The collaboration will see the two companies combining expertise to drive rapid scale up of installed capacity in the tidal energy sector in both the UK and France. The alliance will include co-operation across French and UK sites, driving down costs, catalysing opportunities for funding, and delivering economies of scale to tackle the climate emergency. In November 2020, the European Commission published the European Offshore Strategy setting out the challenge of delivering marine energy capacity targets of 100MW by 2025, and 1GW by 2030.
