Horizon 2020

The European Commission’s Horizon 2020 work programme has been published.

The new €80bn programme explicitly recognises the role ocean energy technologies have to play in developing a sustainable and secure energy system for Europe.

"By putting money on the table for ocean energy applicants, the Horizon 2020 work programme sends a clear political signal that the European Commission and Member States are serious about developing a strong ocean energy industry, said Dr Sian George, CEO of the European Ocean Energy Association. "Securing funding from Horizon 2020 will help the industry to drive down costs and get arrays in the water." 

The Horizon 2020 programme for 2014 and 2015 includes calls for ocean energy in the fields of research, innovation and demonstration. Funding can also be sought via initiatives for offshore grids, SME support, market uptake and FET (Future and Emerging Technologies).
