French Technology Platform on marine renewable energies: a set of scientific and technological facilities for an industrial development

Date: October 07, 2013 at 23:17 GMT

Abstract: In 2009, the French government has decided to create a technology platform for marine renewable energies. This project is presented with its focused objectives and its principles: to enhance research and development for the most promising technologies, in response to the fast-track industry needs.

The main structure of the platform is explained, some milestones are described and the budget line is exposed. These plans rely on the interaction of three poles: a multidisciplinary research kernel, a set of test sites in adequate locations for the various energy resources and recovery technologies, a resource centre offering services and expertise directed to the expansion of the sector. This initiative is obviously open to European collaboration. 


The OES is organised under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA) but is functionally and legally autonomous. Views, findings and publications of the OES do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or its individual member countries.
