DECC does not carry out assessments on the potential generating performance of tidal energy devices. However, the tidal energy demonstration device off the Pembrokeshire coast (DeltaStream) has received the necessary consents from the Department and the Welsh Assembly Government to deploy their tidal energy device. When it is installed in the water, conditions in the consents will require that monitoring of the impacts of the project on the marine environment is undertaken by the developer.
