Did you know that:
💠Ocean energy can provide clean, predictable, indigenous, and reliable energy, contributing to the EU’s objective of reaching a renewable energy share of at least 32% of the EU’s gross final consumption by 2030.
💠SAFEWAVE is improving the knowledge about some of the main pressures of wave energy converters (WECs) operating in the sea under real conditions trough dedicated monitoring campaigns and modelling of cumulative pressures coming from larger arrays.
💠SAFEWAVE develops the MARENDATA platform to share environmental data from operating wave energy sites across Europe via a dedicated data platform named MARENDATA: https://marendata.eu
💠SAFEWAVE is developing guidance for ocean energy developers and public authorities responsible for consenting and licensing WECs in France, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain creating a simple step-by-step guidance document to make the Risk-based Approach and Adaptative Management more user-friendly to regulators and to a wider group of stakeholders.
💠SAFEWAVE is building on the Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) Support Tool for site selection of ocean energy projects in Portugal, Spain, France, and Ireland: https://aztidata.es/vapem/
💠SAFEWAVE is developing a Public Education and Engagement Strategy to collaborate with coastal communities in France, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain.
