How to Support the Development of the European Ocean Energy Value Chain?

Ocean Energy has experience a major progress over the past few years. With the right support, this emerging sector has the potential to significantly contribute to the Energy Union objectives and could become a European industrial success story. In addition, better knowledge of the environmental impact of these technologies is paramount for the development of the sector.

This workshop will give the opportunity to explore how EU funding programmes such as H2020 can support this emerging sector. Ultimately, discussions will feed into the draft of EU Ocean Energy Strategic Roadmap, to be published in November 2016.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Mrs. Marie Donnelly, Director for Renewables, Research and Innovation, Energy Efficiency, DG ENER. Panel discussions will be moderated by Mr. Matthjis Soede (DG RTD), and Mr. Stijn Billiet (DG MARE). Remi Gruet (CEO, Ocean Energy Europe) will conclude the workshop.
