The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies. It seeks to improve new technologies and bring down costs by coordinating national research efforts and helping to finance projects.
The SET Plan Implementation Working Group for Ocean Energy (OE-IWG), one of 14 Implementation Working Groups of the SET Plan, is composed of representatives from the European Commission, Member States, regions and other stakeholders. Its main objective is to facilitate the implementation of the research and Innovation (R&I) priority actions in the ocean energy sector that will deliver the SET Plan aspirations.
The OE-IWG published its first Implementation Plan for Ocean Energy (OE-IP) in March 2018, updating it in April 2021 to reflect the progress of the ocean energy sector. The current OE-IP can be downloaded below.
