Wave and tidal
Scotland has some of the best tidal and wave power resources in the world and we are working closely with companies, government and communities to develop the industry.
As well as managing leasing of the seabed out to 12 nautical miles, we also hold the rights to offshore renewable energy and carbon and gas storage out to 200 nautical miles from the shore.
We also issue consents for short-term activities that impact the foreshore or seabed, such as site surveys. These are called marine works.
Crown Estate Scotland is focused on helping build strong, sustainable marine industries - including offshore renewables - that will deliver economic benefits for Scotland.
