News & Events

The Ocean Energy Forum was formed of 3 work streams for Environment & Consenting, Finance and Technology; each work stream had a Steering Committee and Chair. The three work streams allowed consensus building to take place at a topic-specific level thus enabling pragmatic solutions to issues to be developed.

The Forum and the Chairs were supported by a Secretariat, appointed April 2015, whose responsibility is the production and timely delivery of the Strategic Roadmap. The Strategic Roadmap was delivered to the European Commission on 08 November 2016.
