Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre

Background

The Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre (PTEC) is a state-of-the-art tidal energy generation project.

It is the largest consented tidal stream energy project in England and Wales and will reinforce the UK’s position as a world leader in marine renewables. PTEC’s offshore site will lie around 2.5km south of St Catherine’s Point, Isle of Wight. It will produce up to 30MW (enough to power 15,000 homes), of clean, safe, renewable energy, for export to the UK grid.

The Isle of Wight is the ideal location to develop a marine energy project. With its strong tidal currents the area is suitable for a wide range of tidal technologies and deployment options. The proposed development is a game-changing opportunity to create much needed jobs and training opportunities, as well as encourage local investment and diversification of local businesses
