Ocean energies are the next generation of renewable energy technologies. Being very predictable, they will help integrate even higher levels of wind and solar energy into the grid, and at a lower system cost.
For this reason, the Ocean Energy Forum, a stakeholder group set-up by the European Commission, stepped up its activities this year.
The main output of this Forum, a strategic road map outlining technology priorities, financing options and consenting barriers will be presented by the European Commission to Member States’ energy ministers at a political summit in Dublin this October, on the fringes of the Ocean Energy Europe 2015 conference.

Its message to EU states will be clear: “Here’s what we can do, and here’s what we need to do it”, with a view to turning the roadmap into a public-private partnership to develop the sector in the following years
Getting 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.
