Marine Renewable Energy Supply Chain Development
The Marine Renewable Energy Supply Chain Development (MRESCD) project will assess the supply chain capabilities of Pembrokeshire companies with the potential to diversify into the Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) industry. It will also provide stakeholder engagement and ‘Meet the Buyer’ opportunities for these companies with the aim of helping them to diversify into a new and lucrative market. The initial scoping and opportunity assessment will not only give a baseline understanding of the local MRE supply chain by identifying those companies already working in the sector and those with a strong potential to diversify, but will also look at and assist in providing the type of support that companies need to penetrate the sector. Engagement with local supply chain companies will ensure that they not only understand the opportunities presented but also receive support to ensure that they are in a strong position to bid for and secure contracts. Ultimately, by providing the local supply chain a ‘gateway’ to develop in the emerging marine energy sector, this project seeks to help provide long term economic, societal and environmental sustainability.
