The Saltire Prize, named after the flag of Scotland, is the national award for advances in the commercial development of marine energy. It is organised by Scottish Development International, on behalf of the Scottish Government.
To be considered for the £10 million award teams must 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 100GWh over a continuous 2 year period using only the power of the sea."
