A €1 million H2020 project to support ocean energy implementation in line with the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan)
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. In this framework, the SET Implementation Plan (SET Plan IP) for ocean energy was adopted on 21 March 2018. The target timescale regarding actions listed within this plan is 2025 for tidal technologies and 2030 for wave technologies. To provide support to ocean energy implementation in line with the SET Plan, the OceanSET project was launched in March 2019. It is a 3-year EU H2020 project with a total budget of €1 million that gathers together 9 partners. The OceanSET project will help to obtain a solid understanding of the current activities across Europe regarding ocean energy in order to determine how the sector will evolve.
