Gap: The waves and tides around Ireland and Wales could provide significant low carbon energy. Local companies that build devices to harness this natural resource are already creating jobs and exporting around the world. However, a barrier to development is lack of funding for R&D and pilot demonstration at sea. Another barrier is a lack of common procedures and components (seabed anchors for example), with many technology companies repeating activity in slightly different ways.
