Extracts from the joint press conference by Maria Damanaki and Günther Oettinger, on a new action plan to facilitate the development of renewable ocean energy in Europe

87 views

On 20 January 2014, Maria Damanaki, Member of the EC in charge of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, and Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, presented a new action plan to facilitate the further development of the renewable ocean energy sector in Europe. A central element in this action plan will be to establish an Ocean Energy Forum, bringing together stakeholders to build capacity and foster cooperation. The action plan should help drive forward this nascent 'blue energy' sector towards full industrialisation. Ocean energy covers all technologies to harvest the renewable energy of our seas and oceans other than offshore wind. Its exploitation would contribute to the decarbonisation of the EU's economy and provide secure and reliable renewable energy to Europe.
