Accelerating the growth of the tidal stream industry and bringing the Isle of Wight to the centre of an exciting new global energy sector Read more...

The Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre (PTEC) is a state-of-the-art tidal energy generation project that will reinforce the UK’s position as a world leader in marine renewables.

This transformational project will use world leading turbine technologies to produce 30MW of clean, predictable, renewable energy. PTEC is currently the largest tidal stream energy project in development in England and Wales.

Evidence from another UK tidal power project, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), suggests that PTEC could create hundreds of jobs and attract significant investment into the local economy. According to EMEC, in EMEC’s first 10 years of operation, direct jobs in the marine energy sector in Orkney grew to 250.

PTEC’s offshore site will lie around 2.5km (1.3 nautical miles) south of St Catherine’s Point, Isle of Wight, and could generate electricity to power more than 15,000 homes.

Our purpose

PTEC represents a new era in tidal energy production. Our unique model enables us to produce reliable electricity as well as drive down cost and risk. It will accelerate the UK’s adoption and understanding of tidal energy, and reinforce its standing as a world leader in marine renewables.

Global turbine manufacturers and supply chain companies continue to show interest and commitment to the project.
