The EVOLVE project will demonstrate the important role that ocean energy can play in Europe’s future low carbon energy system

Although implementation of renewable energy technologies is accelerating across Europe, providing a consistent and stable supply of power from variable energy sources like wind is a key challenge. By modelling future power system scenarios across Europe, the EVOLVE project will quantify how ocean energy can not only supply power to our electricity grids, but also enable a more diverse energy mix and cost-effective matching of energy supply and demand. In turn, the project will deliver a business case for future ocean energy developments as an integral part of Europe’s future energy system.
