Selkie is a new €4.2m cross-border project aiming to boost the marine energy industry in Wales and Ireland. Selkie is bringing together leading researchers and businesses to improve the performance of Wave and Tidal marine energy devices. The project activity will establish a cross-border network of developers and supply chain companies in Ireland and Wales and create a set of multi-use technology, engineering and operation tools, templates, standards and models for use across this sector. Selkie will test and validate the technology tools on two pilot demonstration technologies, one wave and one tidal. Project resources will be used to undertake meaningful technology transfer of these tools and they will be made open access post-project. For more information visit
