Target 2025 Conference – Recordings and presentations


The EU Strategy on Offshore Renewable Energy sets a clear objective for ocean energy deployment: 100 MW by 2025. To reach that goal and fund the next 100 MW of ocean energy, the European Commission will need to coordinate with national and regional authorities.

On 22 June 2021, we brought together key actors from EU Institutions, national governments, and the ocean energy industry to explore how best to achieve this 100 MW target. It provided concrete solutions to empower the Commission and Member States to succeed in their coordination work.

A political vision for ocean energy

The EU Strategy on Offshore Renewable Energy is a landmark communication, setting a clear path for ocean energy. Rapid implementation of the text is now needed to reach its ambitious targets.

During this conference, leading EU policymakers shared their vision for the ocean energy sector and discussed priorities to turn the Strategy into action.
