Portuguese initiatives in a European framework for Ocean Energy

Date: October 07, 2013 at 23:04 GMT

Abstract: Ocean Energy is facing difficult times as it is being perceived as an energy source that may not contribute significantly to the EU 2020 renewable energy targets and so is not included in the SET Plan with the result that it will not be significantly funded in the forthcoming years.

There is then a need for European MS to work closer and to jointly show their interest in this energy source and to develop the means to develop the technology and the market. This paper presents the past and future actions and perspectives of Portugal in this area in view of contributing to a joint European effort.
