Ocean DEMO 3rd call approaching deadline
There are only two weeks left to apply for the EU-funded Ocean DEMO 3rd call.
Successful applicants will receive free access to test their ocean energy products and services in real sea environments at the project’s network of test centres.
This call will focus on supporting technology developers with high readiness level for deployment in late 2020 or early 2021.
Technology developers can apply for support packages to test multi-device farms as well as single devices able to scale up to multi-device in the future.
Funded by Interreg North-West Europe, Ocean DEMO is a €13-million project.
It aims to accelerate ocean energy’s transition from single prototype to multi-device farms.
To that end, Ocean Demo provides free access to test centres: EMEC, DMEC, SEM REV and SmartBay.
Launched in June 2020, The third Ocean DEMO call for applications is open until 18 September 2020.
Call documents are available on the Ocean DEMO website.
An Ocean DEMO webinar presenting the application system took place earlier this summer.
In April 2020, the project also awarded recommendations for support to ten offshore renewable energy developers under its 2nd call.
The project has also awarded recommendations for support to twelve offshore renewable energy projects under its 1st call which closed in July 2019.
