The FORESEA (Funding Ocean Renewable Energy through Strategic European Action) project aims to help bring ocean energy technologies to market by providing access to North-West Europe’s world-leading network of test centres. Through the project, the performance of innovative ocean renewable energy technologies will be demonstrated in real sea conditions, helping to leverage the investment needed to take these new products to market.
Access to test sites will be provided through a programme of competitive calls, run by the project’s consortium.
The programme covers the following test centres:
- European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC): Orkney Islands, UK
- SmartBay: Galway, Ireland
- SEM-REV: Nantes, France
- Tidal Testing Centre: Den Oever, Netherlands
Ocean Energy Europe will provide support to the test centres to implement the project.
