Ocean energy

ocean energy refers to the energy carried by ocean waves, tides, salinity, and ocean temperature differences. The movement of water in the world’s oceans creates a vast store of kinetic energy, or energy in motion. This energy can be harnessed to generate electricity to power homes, transport and industries.

Wave Energy Scotland

Wave Energy Scotland will seek applications from interested parties who will be able to apply for up to 100% funding (via a contract) for wave technology development projects. Applications will be made through a competitive project call process. WES is particularly interested in projects which will produce new technology and technology transfer, and/or bring about significant changes in the performance of existing technologies

Ocean Energy Forum third workshop

The Ocean Energy Forum was established in April 2014 to accelerate the development of the ocean energy. It brings together key stakeholders to work on the issues that currently hinder further progress in the sector. It is organised into three workstreams: a technology workstream, a finance workstream and an environmental and consenting workstream. These groups have permanent steering groups and chairs but anyone with a stake in the sector can join any workstream and contribute. The Forum has already met two times in large plenary sessions: for the opening in Brussels in April 2014 and in Dublin in June 2014. A highlevel meeting with ministers and CEOs took place in October 2014 in Paris.

Ocean Energy Forum second workshop

This workshop followed up on the initial discussions that had taken place at the Ocean Energy Forum launch event on the 4th of April in Brussels. In Dublin, the Steering Groups of the three workstreams were introduced and their members were asked to refine workstream agendas and develop a work plan for the next three months. Given that this event followed the final conference of the EU-funded SI OCEAN project, which set out to develop a strategic technology agenda and a market deployment strategy for the tidal and wave energy sectors, the participants were particularly encouraged to debate how these documents can be used in the upcoming work of the Forum
