LINK response to Pentland Firth and Orkney waters wave and tidal projects: Cumulative Impacts Discussion Document

19th July 2011

LINK warmly welcomes the opportunity to comment on The Crown Estate’s discussion document identifying cumulative and in-combination impacts of Pentland Firth and Orkney waters wave and tidal projects.

As identified in Scotland’s Marine Atlas, LINK recognises that along with fishing, climate change is the most widespread pressure on our marine environment, and we support the deployment of renewable energy technology as a vital part of the transition to a low carbon Scotland. However, given the novelty of many of these technologies, and the limited understanding of impacts and baseline conditions, we believe a precautionary approach must be adopted in order to ensure the development of the sector is sustainable.
