The United Kingdom leads the world in the development and deployment of wave and tidal current energy technology. It has some of the best wave and tidal energy resources in the world. The UK university R&D base is well-supported through initiatives like the EPSRC SuperGen Consortium. This paper outlines the work of the consortium, summarises highlights and achievements of its research programme and describes progress in a second phase. It includes an overview of industrial engagement, capacity building in a novel Doctoral Training Programme. It also describes the production, findings and recommendations of the UKERC marine technology R&D roadmap. It concludes by identifying opportunities for research collaboration.
