The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) Ltd is the world's first and only accredited, grid-connected test centre for full-scale wave and tidal energy converters, and is home to some of the most innovative marine energy devices currently in development. The Centre also operates two scale test sites in gentler conditions than at the full-scale sites, for smaller scale device, component and technique testing.

Beyond device testing, EMEC provides a wide range of support, research and consultancy services, is at the forefront in the development of international standards for marine energy, and is forging alliances around the world.
