Alignment between business, research centres and government

translates into intense collaboration in R&D projects

 


Companies and players in the scientific-technological field of Basque Country are conducting joint activities of R&D in the area of wave energy.This is complemented in parallel by the regional existing expertise in marine renewable energy technologies, based on inter-cluster collaborations with a network of high experienced research groups, based on technological excellence, that are reference in energy wave projects within the EU framework programme such as TECNALIA, which also chairs the ‘Ocean Energy Systems’ association.

 

 

OPERA

The objective is to gain open sea operating experience by means of floating OWC wave energy converter (OCEANTEC IDOM) and two field test sites (Mutriku and BiMEP) to reduce the cost of wave energy by 50% in the long term.

 

 

 

 

ELBE

ELBE focuses on establishing an alliance among European leading regions in both ocean energy and floating offshore wind. It gathers five European clusters with top expert companies and R&D organizations in Blue Energy.

 

 

 

 

MARINET2

Network of research centres and organisations that ensures the integration and enhancement of leading European research infrastructures specialised in research, development and testing of Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) systems.

 

 

 

 

DTOcean

European collaborative project funded by the European Commission which provides design tools for deploying the first generation of wave and tidal energy converter arrays.

 

 

 

 

BLUEGIFT

A coordinated ocean energy technology demonstration programme that aims to support a minimum of eight floating wind, wave or tidal demonstration related projects across the Atlantic Area region.

 

 

 

 

BLUE GROWTH FARM

A fully integrated and efficient offshore multipurpose floating platform that will provide a large storage and deck areas to host a commercial 10 MW wind turbine and a number of wave energy converters (WEC).

 

 

 

 

RECODE

The objective is to develop a set of industry-enabling cost-effective and reliable components which will be available as a commercial product for a wide range of ocean energy converters, arrays and facilities.

 

 

 

 

WESE

It will collect and process environmental data from three wave energy devices installed in Spain and Portugal in order to improve the modeling capabilities, develop a licensing guide and facilitate the selection of possible locations for the implementation of this type of technologies.

ENERGIBASQUE The Basque Technological and Industrial Development Energy Strategy

Wave energy is one of the prime commitments of the Basque Technological and Industrial Development Strategy (energiBasque). Through this strategy, the Basque government and its support bodies are creating an environment that will promote development of existing capacities in the region's energy industry.
