    Europe’s Ocean Energy Industry Priorities Set in the Strategic Research Agenda Report

TP Ocean – the European Technology & Innovation Platform for Ocean Energy – has defined the research priorities for Europe’s ocean energy industry in a report called the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA). The document aims to increase reliability, while reducing risk and technology costs, across the ocean energy industry in the most efficient manner. The SRA is the first European document to prioritise research topics for the ocean energy industry and was produced by 220 industry experts from 150 organisations over a two-year period.

It is the industry’s main input into European and national research programmes. Jacopo Moccia, Secretary General of TP Ocean outlined the importance of the publication: “RD&I investment has the biggest impact when it is prioritised and coordinated. The SRA provides the industry’s consensus on where research programmes, such as the EU’s Horizon 2020, should focus. It will also help coordinate ocean energy research across Europe”.
