In 2016, within framework contract for “Studies in Support to Research and Innovation Policy in the areas of Renewable Energy, Carbon Capture and Storage and Clean Coal” DG Research and Innovation has launched a study on “Lessons for Ocean Energy Development”.

The study focuses on tidal and wave energy and analyses failures and good practices/ lessons learnt in past developments, covering technological and non-technological issues and barriers for cooperation (finance, IPR, business operation).

The results of the studies are expected to be presented in early 2017, and to provide recommendations for the development of the Ocean Energy sector in the coming years.
