Ocean Power Innovation Network
The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) is leading a new pan-European project, Ocean Power Innovation Network (OPIN), which aims to accelerate the development of the ocean energy sector.
With a three year budget of €2.6 million, SEAI will partner with organisations in the UK, Belgium, France, Germany and the Netherlands to explore ways to unlock the potential of this renewable energy resource.
Commenting on the launch, Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, T.D. said: “Projects like OPIN that enable European collaboration are critical to us unlocking opportunities to advance the development of our ocean energy sector.”
OPIN will encourage collaboration between the ocean energy sector and other sectors, such as oil and gas, automotive, aerospace, ICT, advanced materials, sensors, and manufacturing, to identify ways to grow the ocean energy supply chain. SEAI is calling on small businesses with expertise that can be used in the ocean sector to join the OPIN project, explore collaboration opportunities with other organisations and avail of the supports available.
A series of events will be hosted in partner countries this year, beginning with a symposium in Dublin in September.
