The FORESEA (Funding Ocean Energy through Strategic European Action) programme has launched its 4th call for proposals at the Offshore Energy 2017 conference. The call aims to help developers of offshore technologies transition into the renewable energy space by developing new applications for their products.

b4500566 e48f 43bf a366 8eb7b77c126dSuccessful applicants will receive support to test at one of FORESEA’s world-leading test centres.

FORESEA is an €11m project which helps to bring offshore renewable energy technologies to market by offering free access to a world-leading network of test centres: EMEC (UK), DMEC (NL), SEM REV (FR) and SmartBay (IE).

Previous FORESEA calls targeted developers of offshore renewable energy technologies. This, the 4th FORESEA call, extends the scope to technology developers in other offshore sectors, such as the oil & gas, subsea and shipping industries, which have renewable energy applications.

Nicolas Wallet, EU Programme Manager at EMEC, highlighted the opportunity this call presents for offshore sectors:

“With this call, we want to provide a bridge to the renewable energy market for technology developers from other sectors. The market for offshore renewables such as wave, tidal and offshore wind is developing rapidly, while at the same time other offshore sectors such as oil & gas have hit a rough patch. So, diversifying into offshore renewables makes a lot of sense for those developers.

We’re keen to have that conversation with technology developers, and see if FORESEA can support them to come to one of our test sites.”

The 4th FORESEA call for proposals is open until 29 June 2018. For further information, visit the FORESEA website.
