E.ON to Focus on Wind, Solar and Biomass

by Tom Morton -

BBC News is reporting that German energy giant E.ON - the world's largest electricity generation company - is to cease working with Edinburgh-based Pelamis Wave Energy on the testing in Orkney of one of the Pelamis wave energy convertors, the P2-002. E.ON says it will now focus on what it calls 'mature' renewable technologies such as 'wind, solar and biomass', though it may return to marine energy development later.

Pelamis says the decision will not affect its plans. Its first commercial wave energy machines will be in operation 'within the next couple of years'.
