Ocean energy firm CorPower Ocean is contributing to a policy session during EU Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels (EUSEW 2024) exploring actions to reinforce Europe’s role in renewables development and manufacturing. 

Senior Project Manager Eunice Silva joins the panel “Renewables Made in Europe: Competitiveness of wind, solar and ocean energy”, co-organised by WindEurope, SolarPower Europe and Ocean Energy Europe. 

Offshore renewables are poised to become a fundamental pillar of the energy transition and energy security in the EU. By 2050, they can provide more than 300 GW or 20% of the electricity mix.  

Ocean energy will play an important role offering highly predictable and consistent renewable electricity. Eunice will explain more about the mission to develop a new sustainable industry across Europe generating 500,000 qualified jobs – using local supply chains, ports and small vessels, avoiding supply chain constraints. 

The event comes shortly after CorPower Ocean contributed to a new ‘Guide for Decision Makers’ through the Working Group on Offshore Renewable Energies, established under the Clean Energy Industry Forum (CEIF) by the European Commission. 

The group, which also includes wind sector operators Vestas and Siemens among others, aims to increase understanding on supply chains, while identifying challenges and potential implementation bottlenecks for reaching 2030 and 2050 offshore renewable targets.
