Joint Programme on Ocean Energy
Energy Status: Launched
JP Coordinator: Henry Jeffrey, SuperGen Marine, Institute for Energy Systems, The University of Edinburgh
Participants/Associates: The University of Edinburgh (UK), Technalia (ES), Wavec (PT), IFREMER (FR), ENEA (IT), HMRC (IE), SINTEF/MARNTEK (NO), Fraunhofer (DE)
The EERA Ocean Energy JP is based around six key research themes. These themes have been developed based on existing research roadmaps which identify the critical areas of research required for the successful growth of the industry. The Research Themes are here:
- Devices and Technology
- Deployment and Operations
- Environmental Impact
- Socio-economic Impact
- Research Infrastructure, Education and Training
Within each Research Theme a number of sub-topics have been identified as key long term research objectives. Initial EERA Ocean Energy JP activities are not able to cover all of the objectives identified but have been prioritised in the first year’s programme by need and the current availability of funding. The gap between what has been identified as a key long term objective and what the EERA Ocean Energy JP is actually able to deliver in the first year will help identify issues that need future funding and coordinated research efforts.
