    The role of maritime resources in meeting Europe´s renewable energy and energy security needs will be analysed. A number of technologies have been developed to harness renewable marine energy: tidal energy, marine currents, wave energy, osmotic power, etc. European, national and regional programmes on these new types of energy will be summarised and non-technological barriers to their growth, including the level of public acceptance, uncertainties about the risks and returns of the installations, etc., will be considered.
