Environmental Interactions of Marine Renewables (EIMR) is an international conference series hosted across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Previous conferences in Kirkwall, Orkney (2012) and Stornoway, Lewis (2014) – hosted by Heriot-Watt University (HWU) and the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) – explored the interactions of wave and tidal energy technologies with the environment. Since then, wave and tidal testing and commercial deployments have progressed in Scotland and worldwide.

The industry, regulators and academic researchers now have real world experience that has generated valuable lessons about effective methods and the relative significance of different interactions.
