Offshore energy was until recently synonymous with oil and gas. European technology continues to drive innovation in this sector and this enables exploration and exploitation under ever more hostile conditions. However other forms of energy, wind especially but also tide and wave, are beginning to promise feasible solutions that can enable Europe to meet its renewable energy goals.

Study in Support of Impact Assessment Work for Ocean Energy

The ocean energy sector is on the brink of commercial development. Europe is currently in the lead in this emerging industry both in terms of technological capacity and deployment. There are several barriers, however, which could jeopardise the future of this clean energy industry. The EU can intervene to help resolve some of these issues. Depending on the strength of this intervention, the market uptake by 2035 could range from relatively modest (4.3GW) to strong (10.5GW). The study concludes that the economic, social and environmental benefits are maximised under the strong policy intervention scenario, which presupposes the use of robust policy measures supporting renewable energy proliferation.

MERiFIC (Marine Energy in Far Peripheral and Island Communities - Energies marines dans les territoires insulaires et périphériques)

The maritime regions of Cornwall and Finistère are in a great position to benefit from the expected growth in marine renewable energy. Their peninsula nature and exposure to the Atlantic Ocean provides significant wave, wind and tidal resources.
