This paper looks at the difference between the UK’s and Costa Rican procedural requirements for the installation of marine energy devices. Costa Rica has a history of implementing renewable energy sources to produce electricity, such as hydro-electric systems. This knowledge and the UK’s expertise in marine energy policy and legislation are used to make comparisons on the individual procedures when a development of this kind is being proposed. Recommendations are made on measures which could be introduced into both countries procedures in order to have more efficient guidelines for marine energy projects.
