European Technology and Innovation Platform for Ocean Energy

European Technology and Innovation Platform for Ocean Energy

Objective

ETIP Ocean 2 has 3 strategic objectives:
- Ensure optimal use of existing resources for the sector and streamline sectoral activities;
- Support and accelerate European and global deployment of ocean energy;
- Ensure that the potential benefits for European industry and society are maximised.

The European ocean energy sector has major potential. To reach this potential sectoral stakeholders must collaborate, share knowledge, and avoid the duplication of efforts. There is also a need for close cooperation between the public and private stakeholders. The ETIP Ocean 2 project has been designed to deliver this.

Stakeholder exchanges via the ETIP Ocean platform will be strengthened. A series of structured and targeted webinars and workshops will be organised. These will cover the key challenges facing the ocean energy sector – in the domains of technology, finance, social and environmental – and will allow stakeholders from across the sector to exchange and coordinate.

Based upon stakeholder exchanges, a series of accessible and information-based studies and reports will be released. The work to produce these publications will focus exchanges, and will help ensure that learnings from the project are widely disseminated. They will be accessible to those who did not participate directly, and will preserve learnings beyond the lifetime of the project.

Finally, ETIP Ocean 2 will support the coordination of public and private stakeholders. By acting as a bridge to the SET Plan Ocean Energy Working Group, ETIP Ocean 2 will ensure that sectoral activities are aligned with the actions and objectives of the SET Plan Ocean Energy Implementation Plan.

The ETIP Ocean 2 project will engage all stakeholders and foster cooperation; align stakeholders to commonly agreed goals; find novel approaches to the development of technological and social processes related to the energy transition, and coordinate stakeholders in the context of the SET Plan Ocean Energy Implementation Plan.
