TIGER project is driving growth of tidal energy in UK and France

The Tidal Stream Industry Energiser Project (TIGER) that launched in 2019 to drive tidal energy growth in the UK and France, has successfully demonstrated the significant value tidal stream energy can bring to the future energy mix, economies and supply chains in both the UK and France.

TIGER is the largest project funded by the Interreg France (Channel) England Programme, with €48.4 million invested to drive collaboration and cost reduction through tidal turbine installations in the UK and France.

The project, led by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, has enabled installation of four new tidal stream energy devices at test sites in and around the Channel region, with a further 16 in development. This has created a total of 3.6 MW new tidal capacity, with a further 57.4 MW in the pipeline.
