Press Release: OEE and Copernicus Marine Service to help the European ocean energy industry to go global


Ocean Energy Europe and Copernicus Marine Service officially launched their new partnership today at a reception hosted by the European Commission in Brussels. The collaboration will help European ocean energy companies create export market opportunities.


Copernicus Marine Service uses the Copernicus satellite network to generate data on seas and oceans. The partnership launched today will improve access to this data for the ocean energy industry, with a strong focus on export markets. It will also help inform the next iteration of Copernicus Marine Service for the ocean energy sector by leveraging hands-on knowledge from the industry.

This will benefit the European ocean energy industry by providing better global resource assessment, more precise weather forecasting, and support environmental impact assessment.

The partnership will last up to 3 years.


Rémi Gruet, CEO of Ocean Energy Europe said:
“Precise data such as current speed is paramount to assessing electricity production and reducing costs. This partnership will increase interaction between the industry and Copernicus Marine Service ensuring the programme meets the needs of the ocean energy sector. The focus on export markets will help build on Europe’s technology leadership by facilitating projects outside of Europe.”
