Ocean Energy Systems (OES) has published a new document which highlights worldwide key projects and political initiatives driving the ocean energy sector forward.

The report entitled ‘Spotlight on Ocean Energy’ provides insights of 20 ocean energy projects and five political initiatives in the OES member countries.

OES is an intergovernmental collaboration which operates under a framework established by the International Energy Agency.

It was founded by three countries in 2001 and has grown to its present 25 members – forming a broad international base of information.

Member countries of OES are implementing a number of policies to support the development of ocean energy and harvest their unique ocean energy resources.

The latest report provides summaries of several national strategies, funding programs and market incentives, test sites and R&D centers supporting the development of ocean energy projects.

Some of the marine energy projects featured in the report include Scotrenewables floating tidal platform, Cape Sharp Tidal project, Laminaria’s wave energy converter, Sabella’s D10 tidal turbine, as well as Canada’s Water Wall Turbine, and India’s wave-powered navigational buoy.

“These projects are good examples of the intense activity of this emerging sector but there is a much larger number of relevant projects being developed world wide,” OES said.

Through sharing experience and knowledge of its members coming from governmental departments, utilities, universities and research organizations, energy agencies and industry associations –

OES aims to advance research, development and demonstration of conversion technologies that harness energy from all forms of ocean renewable resources.
