Ocean energy: an essential part of the energy transition

The European Commission has set a target of 1 GW by 2030 (together with 60 GW of offshore wind) for wave and tidal energy in its Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy. These figures could be a decisive boost in terms of generating the economies of scale that will lead to significant growth in the sector over the coming decades.
