Atlas of UK Marine Renewable Energy Resources

In 2003, ABPmer initiated the development of an Atlas of the UK Marine Renewable Energy Resources to help government take forward its ambitions for the sector. Working with major marine data holders, Met Office and Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL), ABPmer’s Data Team managed the delivery of the Atlas bringing the data together into GIS data layers (maps).

The original Atlas was published in September 2004 and greater access to updated datasets was afforded via an online webGIS in 2008. Since 2011, the Atlas and associated downloads have been hosted on ABPmer’s website http://vision.abpmer.net

We retain an in-house development programme to extend the information made available through the Atlas and actively monitor uptake across the industry. We have also developed a set of unique exploration tools to complement the resource maps to enable a greater level of understanding at site selection. The Atlas continues to attract great interest across the industry and still remains as the most recognised source of freely available information of detailed regional descriptions of potential marine energy resources in UK waters.
