Fast-tracking Offshore Renewable energy With Advanced Research to Deploy 2030MW of tidal energy before 2030

Project description

Accelerating commercial deployment of floating tidal energy

Ocean energy has the potential to provide a substantial amount of renewable and reliable energy around the world. European waters have about 10 GW of predictable high-value tidal stream potential. The EU-funded FORWARD-2030 project will accelerate the commercial deployment of tidal energy, which is in line with the European Green Deal. Specifically, the project will develop a multi-vector energy system that will combine predictable floating tidal energy, wind generation, grid export, battery storage and green hydrogen production. Moreover, it will create an integrated environmental monitoring system, an energy management system and an operational forecasting tool. Ultimately, FORWARD-2030 will complete a supply chain plan, a societal cost of energy assessment tool, marine spatial planning and a life-cycle carbon reduction assessment.
