On the Cutting Edge of Tidal Blade Design and Materials

To boost the competitiveness of tidal energy, the NEMMO project aims at optimising tidal turbine blade design and performance by making a larger, lighter, and more durable composite blade for floating tidal turbines.


This project, now in its third year, has already made great progress in testing and producing tailored composites, coatings and appendages for a novel tidal blade. This side event will highlight the latest findings on materials and modelling and the results they have achieved.

An overview of the progress in the ocean energy sector

The third OceanSET Knowledge Sharing workshop will present results of the third survey carried out across Member States and Ocean Energy device developers in Europe. The results will focus on Member States and partnering non-EU countries’ policy and infrastructure, nationally funded projects, technology costs and performance, and suggestions for improvements.


This year we will also provide an update on the EuropeWave pre-commercial procurement programme and the upcoming wave energy projects being selected to progress the Ocean Energy sector.

Collaborative Innovation – New Horizons

The Horizon 2020 OCEANERA-NET COFUND project is now in its fifth year and has successfully implemented two Joint Calls for collaborative, trans-national research, development and demonstration projects to tackle some of the key challenges and opportunities for ocean energy. The 9 projects funded under the Co-funded Joint Call are reaching completion and have exciting results to report, while we have 4 projects ongoing under the second call. This side event will hear from companies on the benefits of collaborative innovation and OCEANERA-NET support, and the results they have achieved.
