Leaders of the EVOLVE Project have launched a new official website to communicate key achievements and landmarks throughout the 3-year initiative.
The €1 million Economic Value of Ocean Energy (EVOLVE) project aims to produce quantifiable outputs to illustrate the benefits associated with integrating ocean energy in low carbon energy systems across the regions of north west Europe.
Granted through the OCEANERA-Net Cofund initiative, it brings together Aquatera as project manager, Scottish Enterprise, WaveC Offshore Renewables, Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), University of Edinburgh, Orbital Marine Power and CorPower Ocean.
The website, which is live and under continued development, will play a central role communicating key findings with regular updates and knowledge sharing.
The project is expected to have a significant impact on the integration of ocean energy in European energy systems and through this, support Europe’s green transition while strengthening cooperation and blue economy.
Continued engagement throughout the project will ensure that the results produced are relevant and useful to a wide range of stakeholders including technology and project developers, regulators, policy makers, electricity system operators and project investors, according to project partners.
The Ocean ERA-NET Cofund is a European initiative funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation, which allows for individual countries to fund European collaborative projects.
