Wave and Tidal Energy Market: Overview

Wave energy is the process of conveying and capturing energy from the ocean's surface and utilizing it for applications such as power generating. Tidal energy is generated by the interaction of the moon's and sun's gravitational forces, which causes the natural rise and fall of ocean tides or seawater levels.

The global wave and tidal energy industry are experiencing the strongest demand due to a rise in project expansion across countries, which results in substantial electricity cost reductions. Additionally, an increase in investments and new rules by local governments encourages technology innovators to commercialize their energy converter devices as soon as possible. For both energy types, technical development is still in its early stages.

This offers plenty of room for new entrants to enter the industry by offering cutting-edge technologies. There is a greater prospect for the development of new technology-based tidal stream power plants. Both private and public industries are expected to have massive market expansion in terms of installed capacity and investment. The growing use of renewable energy sources, as well as the potential of wave and tidal as power sources, are encouraging commercialization through the deployment of small arrays, which will have a positive impact on the wave and tidal energy market growth in the foreseeable future.

Covid-19 Impact

COVID-19-caused worldwide health emergencies have impacted the influence on the energy sector due to slowed transportation and economic activity around the world. However, the expansion of renewable energies was not slowed while the world battled the pandemic's collapsing economy. The growing use of renewable energy has demonstrated the durability of renewable energy, which will be a driving force in the demand for these technologies in the next years.

Aside from the robustness of renewable sources, different government efforts and financing are working to provide revenue support for the development and deployment of an innovative technologies portfolio for clean power generation. For instance, Orbital Marine Power has produced the next-generation technology O2, its first commercial tidal turbine, which is scheduled to be installed at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney in 2020.

Wave and Tidal Energy Market: Driver

Rapid development in the renewable energy sector will propel growth.

Due to the increasing depletion of fossil fuels and rising environmental concerns, the global energy transition is advancing the renewable sector with technological advances, development priorities, and others. The government, armed with the required infrastructure resources, looks beyond the total energy supply for cost-effective and scalable alternatives.

However, in order to assess the feasibility of a new source of power, governments such as the United Kingdom have introduced clean energy growth strategies that involve cost reductions in technology, reductions in carbon emissions, and the development of cutting-edge technologies. Several technologies, including wind, solar, wave, and tidal, have been highlighted for their importance in lowering carbon emissions.

Renewable energy technologies, such as wind and solar power, have been widely adopted, however, they have limitations due to land availability and a mismatch between supply and demand. As a result, tidal and wave power have emerged as a new renewable resource with vast untapped potential. Moreover, strategic backing for the industry would result in practical implementations of the Green Transition and significant export prospects in tidal and wave power technologies.

Wave and Tidal Energy Market: Restraint

A lack of technological advancements and pricing challenges will stymie market growth.

The Wave and tidal devices technology is currently advancing to the point where wave project demonstrations are being installed. However, the technology has not yet converged with any design technology, and the research on this technology has increased the sector's complexity. As a result, a lack of industrial coherence is constrained by supply chains for diverse components of planning and technical growth. Aside from the technical barrier, the cost of constructing and preserving the structures is considerably greater than the cost of other sources of renewable energy as the operating and maintaining any facility in the open sea has many key challenges affecting the economics of scale, including the current and projected cost.

Wave and Tidal Energy Market: Segmentation

The Wave and Tidal Energy Market are segregated based on Type, Technology, and End User.

By Type, the market is classified into Wave Power plants and Tider Power Plants. The tidal power market has been the fastest expanding in the globe. Market expansion is being driven by increased investment in emerging markets. The most critical stage is the MeyGen project to commercialize tidal technology. Technological advancement in the tidal power segment increases commercialization, which leads to segment expansion.

By Technology, the market is classified into Tidal Stream Generator, Pendulum Device, Oscillating Water Columns, Barrage, and Others. Oscillating water columns are the most rapidly developing segment of the wave energy business. It is a form of wave energy converter that produces electrical energy. This is accomplished through the oscillation of waves within a chamber. It has a low environmental impact and is the preferred renewable energy source. Companies are working to improve the efficiency of oscillating water columns.

Recent Developments

  • In 2021, Orbital Marine Power has begun construction on Orbital O2, the world's most powerful tidal turbine. The turbine was launched from Scotland's Port of Dundee and will be connected to the European Marine Center in Orkney, where it will be operational.
  • In 2020, ABB and CorPower Ocean inked a collaboration agreement in which CorPower Ocean agreed to employ ABB's two medium voltage motors. One of them would be in charge of driving the test rig, while the other would assist in energy storage.

Regional Landscape

Europe is predicted to lead the market during the projection period. The increasing supply of renewable energy is obtaining a larger market share across Europe and is expected to stimulate regional industry growth. The United Kingdom has the most extensive historical deployment of this technology, and with the construction of the European Marine Energy Center, it has reached a new milestone (EMEC). Furthermore, the European Marine Energy Center (EMEC) is the largest venue for wave technology initiatives and has housed a substantial portion of wave energy developers that are nearing commercialization.
