This document draws on various assessments and reports relating to marine energy in the Bristol Channel. The Bristol Channel is a complex hydrodynamic system which supports a wide range of marine habitats, communities and economics interests, as well as providing a major sea transport route into the UK. This discussions paper proposes an alternative ‘balanced multi technology approach’ which has been developed from an on-going dialogue with industry though the Bristol Tidal Energy Forum and South West Marine Energy Park, as well as input from a number of economic and environmental stakeholders.
