Marine renewable energies in areas beyond national jurisdiction: legal answers to new environmental and governing challenges

Project description

Sustainable development of marine renewable energy in areas beyond national jurisdiction

About 64 % of our oceans are marine areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ). The use of marine renewable energy (MRE) in these areas can promote energy security and competitiveness and help combat climate change. However, MRE expansion into marine ABNJ can involve new risks and threats to security and biodiversity. The EU-funded RENEWABLE-HIGH-SEAS project aims to enhance the sustainable development of MRE in ABNJ in Europe and worldwide. To this end, it will analyse global and European regional regulatory frameworks in terms of MRE development and environmental protection related to their development in ABNJ. It will also investigate new forms of governance through global energy agencies. The project will help advance and strengthen renewable energy and related environmental governance in ABNJ.
