On June 30th, 2015 the Pro-Tide Work Package 2 (Environmental) hosted a one-day workshop: “Making monitoring significant: strategies for tidal energy in nearshore environments”. Approximately 30 delegates attended the workshop, including project partners, consultants, researchers, and industry-members. Representatives from the Pro-Tide tidal test sites presented the latest updates from their sites and shared monitoring strategies, while industry representatives and researchers provided thought-provoking presentations on developing effective, site-appropriate survey and monitoring strategies going forward.
