The future of offshore renewables
Wednesday, 16 March
11:00 - 12:30
Room 1101A, Brussels Expo
A common approach for the exploitation of wind, wave, tidal and other ocean energy resources has the potential to accelerate the development of offshore renewables and reduce their cost. The Offshore Renewable Energy Conversion Platforms – Coordination Action (www.ORECCA.eu ) aims to overcome knowledge fragmentation in Europe, with a focus on platform designs and technologies including supply chain issues.
This workshop sought to establish a common offshore renewables roadmap for Europe. Key experts provided useful input to industry, research organisations and policy makers on the necessary steps to foster the development of the offshore renewables sector in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
