DECC has not had specific discussions on the Welsh Assembly Government and Crown Estate's agreement. However, we are working closely with the Welsh Assembly Government, the other devolved Administrations and the Crown Estate through the UK Marine Energy Programme to enhance the UK marine energy sector's ability to develop and deploy wave and tidal energy devices at a commercial scale.

DECC welcomes the Welsh Assembly Government's initiative with the Crown Estate to work together to support the development of marine renewable energy manufacturing capacity in Wales.
