Potential Impacts of Marine Energy Development on Scotland’s Marine Ecological Environment

Welcome to IMPACT

IMPACT is an online tool that has been produced by Aquatera on behalf of the Scottish Government as one of the outputs from the commissioned study – A Review of the Potential Impacts of Wave and Tidal Energy Development on Scotland’s Marine Ecological Environment (Aquatera, 2012).

IMPACT provides direct access to the outputs of this study in an easily searchable and accessible format.  This allows users to identify the potential key environmental impacts associated with wave and tidal energy developments and to access guidelines and recommendations for how best to assess, monitor and manage these impacts.
