About ARE

Alderney Renewable Energy (ARE) is a leading tidal energy developer based in Alderney.

ARE was founded in 2004 with the purpose of maximising the powerful tidal resources in the seas around Alderney in the Channel islands, ensuring effective, sustainable tidal energy generation. Since then, ARE has developed into one of Europe's most forward thinking renewables companies, with a vision to utilise the huge potential of tidal energy to deliver sustainable, reliable sources of green energy to Europe and beyond.

ARE combines its expertise in identifying and securing rights to tidal resources with long term partnerships with leading tidal device manufacturers, cable manufacturers, engineering companies and major international utilities to deliver successful tidal projects.

In 2008, ARE secured a 65 year licence from The States of Alderney and the Alderney Commission for Renewable Energy. The licence provides ARE with access to Alderney's Territorial waters, an area of 48 square miles, and permits ARE to install tidal turbines and infrastructure for renewable energy systems. The tidal resource in this area alone is estimated to produce enough power for 1.8 million homes.
