Lack of Grid Parity key Concern for Energy Producers

The growing efforts to set more tidal stream power plants in developing and developed regions is also catalyzing the market growth. However, the growth of the wave and tidal energy market is constrained by several factors. Tidal stream and wave power plants have still not been able to achieve grid parity. This is essential for the wider commercialization of wave and tidal energies and is also necessary to sustain a sizeable return on investment. World over, companies seek long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs). The shift to private equity and debt financing models by players will also create new, exciting avenues in the market.
