Ocean Energy: Feedback Statement of the Online Public Consultation
This public consultation on ocean energy was carried out in order to gain insight into the development of these energy resources. The responses will serve as a basis for an assessment of the policy options available to support this sector at the EU level.
Ocean energy (OE) is one of the focus areas identified as a potential source of growth in the European Commission's Blue Growth Communication. It is widely recognised that developing the energy resource in our seas and oceans could benefit European citizens by increasing energy security, enhancing economic growth and job creation, and mitigating the negative impacts of climate change.
