Accepting the award, Yemm said in a press release: “This is an individual award, but wherever you take the time to look across this exciting new sector you can see exceptional individuals working together as one team to deliver on the ‘win-win’ of clean energy and economic development opportunity that marine energy represents.
“Our sector has a unique cohesiveness forged by experience that working together gives us—and an output much greater than the sum of the parts.”
Yemm is the second person to get the Saltire Prize medal, given under the auspices of Scotland’s £10 million ($15.8 million) Saltire Prize marine energy challenge. Under the terms of the challenge, the money will be awarded to the team that can demonstrate, in Scottish waters, a commercially viable wave or tidal stream energy technology that achieves the greatest volume of electrical output, over the set minimum hurdle of 100 gigawatt-hours, over a continuous two-year period, using only sea power.
It has so far attracted more than 150 registrations of interest from around the world.
