Isle of Wight Council

Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre


The Perpetuus Tidal Energy Centre (PTEC) is a state-of-the-art tidal energy generation project.

It is the largest consented tidal stream energy project in England and Wales and will reinforce the UK’s position as a world leader in marine renewables. PTEC’s offshore site will lie around 2.5km south of St Catherine’s Point, Isle of Wight. It will produce up to 30MW (enough to power 15,000 homes), of clean, safe, renewable energy, for export to the UK grid.
