About

The working group on ocean energy was established in 2017. Its objective is to conduct research and develop roadmaps that set out the aspirations of the wave and tidal sectors.  

The working group is supported by the ETIP Ocean and the OceanSET project

The OceanSET project helps implement the working group’s implementation plan and promotes knowledge sharing among EU countries, regions and other stakeholders in the ocean energy sector. 

ETIP Ocean helps to define research and innovation priorities for the ocean energy sector. 

Targets and objectives

The working group on ocean energy has updated its implementation plan in 2020. The revised plan introduces new targets closely aligned with the EU offshore renewable energy strategy. The working group has identified targets and actions, both cross-cutting (i.e. related to all ocean energy technology) and technology-specific (i.e. related to either wave or tidal), to be carried out at both national and EU level. 

Composition

The working group is composed of representatives from the EU countries, regions and other stakeholders.  It is chaired by Italy and includes 13 other European countries.
