Leading the way with EU support

Further deployments in real sea conditions are now key to moving the sector forward, so we can generate operational data, improve knowledge of device behaviour and improve logistics and processes. As deployment increases, both manufacturing and installation processes are standardised and industrialised, unfolding the paths to cost reductions.

At this event, our expert panels of world-leading technology developers will explain their successes to-date through ocean deployment, how the EU and its Member States are helping, and what challenges lay ahead. A panel debate will promote discussions on the following topics:

  • Global leadership: Maintaining Europe’s technological advantage in ocean energy
  • Route to market: Supporting testing and pre-commercial arrays
