The Tidal Stream Industry Energiser Project

Timescale: 2019 – 2023 (47 months)

Funder: Interreg France (Channel) England Programme

Funding: ERDF funding € 29.9 million / Total project budget € 45.4 million

Project overview: The TIGER project will demonstrate that tidal stream energy is a maturing industry, capable of achieving an accelerated cost reduction pathway.

The project will build cross-border partnerships to develop new technologies, test and demonstrate up to 8 MW of new tidal capacity at a number of locations around the Channel region, and use the learning from this development to make a stronger, cost-effective case for tidal energy as part of the France/UK energy mix.

The project is the largest ever to be approved not only by the France (Channel) England Programme but by any Interreg programme.
