International assessment of jobs related to the development of the Ocean Energy sector

For decision makers, the assessment of the number of jobs related to the development of the Ocean Energy sector is of utmost importance.

Various roadmaps have advanced figures for the 2025, 2030 and even 2050 horizons, but in the time since, numerous ocean energy technologies have been designed and tested, and implemented in pilot farms, and it is now time to assess an accurate total number of existing jobs directly related to the sector. It is also time to validate an approach to assess jobs creation in the sector and update projections for the 2030/2050 horizons.

This project on ocean energy jobs creation related to the development of the Ocean Energy sector, commissioned today by the OES, will run for 1-year and will be conducted by a consortium of organisations with complementary industry-leading expertise: LOC Renewables (including Innosea), France Energies Marines and the Fraser of Allander Institute from the University of Strathclyde. The consortium will engage with all OES country members and further with representatives from the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission and from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Henry Jeffrey of University of Edinburgh, Chairperson of OES, said, “I believe the outcomes of this study will help to motivate governments, corporations and agencies to further support the ocean energy sector by providing them with credible and unbiased information on the sensitive issue of jobs creation”.
