mria Welcome to the website of the Marine Renewables Industry Association (MRIA) which represents companies and interests on the island of Ireland - Ireland and Northern Ireland - in the Marine Renewables Emerging Technologies' (MRET) fields of wave, tidal, floating wind and 'hybrid' energy. The Association includes firms engaged in device development and manufacture, developers of projects and sites, academic researchers, consultants, professional firms and researchers.
The Association is an all-island body.
The Association wants this website to become an important source for all interested in the Marine Renewables Emerging Technologies and welcomes e.g. any donations of photographs of MRET devices or facilities for the site.
