Role of the group
The MEPB, which draws together key stakeholders from across the marine energy sector, plays a central role in advising ministers what actions the Marine Energy Programme should address to advance the industry.
Meetings of the MEPB, chaired by Greg Barker MP, are held annually.
Through a number of sub-groups, the board will focus on particular issues faced by the industry to provide evidence and to propose a way forward. Sub groups are dynamic teams which change to reflect the needs and issues within the marine industry over time.
The current sub-groups are:
- Consent & Licensing
- Energy Market Reform (EMR)
- Grid Access & Island Charging
- The Wave and Tidal Knowledge Network
