Supporting Ocean Energy Technology Development and Commercialisation: Coherent Application of Guidance, Standards and Certification

This is a joint publication from the IEA-OES and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

Like more mature sectors, the ocean energy sector has a growing body of a guidance and support provision, designed to promote and accelerate commercial exploitation of prospective technologies.  As the interests and objectives of stakeholders evolve along the development pathway, so does the guidance required to support the sector’s passage – from early-stage conceptualisation to commercial readiness.

This document discusses four such sources of guidance and is written by the providers who are collaborating to ensure they deliver a complementary and coherent set of recommendations. By sharing this collaboration, IEA-OES, IEC TC 114 and IECRE intend to promote the value of each source of guidance and to illustrate how they complement each another.
