Led by the UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, TIGER comprises 19 partners from across the UK, France and Sweden, spanning turbine developers, ocean energy demonstration sites, research organisations, as well local and regional authorities.

TIGER will make a stronger, more cost-effective case for tidal stream power to become part of the energy mix in the UK and France, by collaborating and sharing best practice through a number of European in-stream tidal energy deployments.

As well as the clear environmental benefits, and the reliability of tidal stream energy, coastal communities will benefit from tidal stream energy through future investment and the job creation associated with the supply chain and device management.
