Ocean Energy Europe An Alstom 1MW aqua-turbine being lifted into water. The worker (bottom right) gives an indication of scaleGetting the support framework right over the next decade, could see ocean energy covering 10% of EU electricity demand by 2050, a highly attractive prospect for the EU.

Over the next few years, the ocean renewable energy industry will deploy pilot farms, with Scotland leading the way.

These early projects will set a path for the industrial roll-out of up to 100GW of deployed capacity around Europe by 2050.

The EU is now moving to support ocean energy in a meaningful way, adding further momentum to sector’s steady march towards commercialisation.

The European industry will converge on Dublin on 20-21 October to hammer out a development strategy and forge partnerships that will take progress to next level.
