The background

Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre (PTEC) is an important project to harness tidal energy as a renewable, reliable source of electricity. The project achieved full consent in 2016 but was delayed by a change in government policy.

Now, backed by our partnership with EMEC and anticipated new government support, we plan to be operational by 2025.

Next steps

A planning application for the onshore elements of the project will be submitted to the Isle of Wight Council in the coming months.

If consent is granted, onshore construction work is anticipated to commence in 2023.  We are sympathetic to the needs and concerns of the community and will seek to ensure minimal disturbance to local residents and businesses.
