EU begins work on roadmap to boost wave and tidal

The European Commission wants to set “clear targets for industrial development” of devices, but funding remains an issue

The European Commission is to develop a roadmap by 2016 to speed up commercialisation of wave and tidal power devices, it announced on 20 January.

This will contain “clear targets for industrial development of the sector, as well as a timeframe for their achievement”, it said. But it is not committing to more funding.

The roadmap will be developed with the input of a new Ocean Energy Forum. This will bring together industry, governments, regional authorities and non-government organisations.
