09 November 2016. Brussels. The FORESEA (Funding Ocean Renewable Energy through Strategic European Action) Programme’s second call for support package applications was opened yesterday at the Ocean Energy Europe 2016 Conference & Exhibition. Support packages will help technologies to commercialise by providing free access to FORESEA’s network of world leading test sites.
FORESEA is an €11m project which helps to bring offshore renewable energy technologies to market by providing free access to a world-leading network of test centres – EMEC (UK), SEM-REV (France), SmartBay (Ireland) and Stitchting Tidal Testing Centre (Netherlands).
Ten technology developers were ‘Recommended for Support’ following the first call for applications.
The second call for applications was formally launched yesterday at a reception in the OEE2016 Conference & Exhibition by EMEC Managing Director, Mr Neil Kermode.
Speaking at the reception, Mr Kermode said: “With ten technologies recommended for support, it’s fair to say that the FORESEA programme is off to a tremendous start, and we are really looking forward to welcoming some of these developers to EMEC in the coming months”,
“To continue this momentum, I am pleased to announce that the second call for applications is now open”, said Mr Kermode
