Building national support: a pathway to multi-device farms

A supportive policy environment at national level is necessary for the deployment of ocean energy multi-device farms. The Interreg NWE Ocean DEMO project is working actively with national governments in North-Western Europe to create policies that will enable the immense potential of ocean energy.

This side event will bring together national policy experts from France, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom to discuss the current ocean energy policy landscape in their respective countries and how it can be improved in the future.
