Scots wave body seeks heads image

Wave Energy Scotland (WES) is seeking to appoint three new members to its advisory group.

The Highlands and Islands Enterprise-owned body has invited expressions of interest from representatives from the wave industry, utilities, academia plus the investment and insurance communities.

WES is looking for individuals with experience of providing strategic advice to project delivery and in securing long term project finance for technology development.

“The advisory group plays a critical role in supporting WES in achieving its objectives and to support wider Scottish efforts to develop the wave energy sector,” said the Inverness organisation.

“As well as the opportunity to join an exciting developmental journey, members will have the ability to influence the strategic direction of this emerging sector.”

WES is managing three funding calls including wave device power take-off systems, novel wave energy converter projects and structural materials.

WES expects to announce its fourth innovation call, for controls systems, in April.
