The Tidal Stream Industry Energiser Project, known as TIGER, is the biggest ever Interreg project that proves game-changing for the European tidal stream energy sector.
The TIGER project drives the growth of tidal stream energy in France and in the UK (Channel region) with significant economic benefits for coastal communities.
The project builds cross-border partnerships to develop new technologies, test and demonstrate up to 8 MW of new tidal capacity at a number of locations around the Channel region.
TIGER comprises 18 partners from across the UK and France spanning turbine developers, ocean energy demonstration sites, research organisations, as well has local and regional authorities.
Led by the UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (OREC), from its office in Hayle, Cornwall.
