ORECCA European Offshore Renewable Energy Roadmap September 2011 European Offshore Renewable Energy Roadmap The ORECCA Project The ORECCA (Offshore Renewable Energy Conversion Platform Coordination Action) Project is an EU FP7 funded collaborative project in the offshore renewable energy sector. The project’s principal aim is to overcome the fragmentation of know how available in Europe and its transfer amongst research organisations, industry stakeholders and policy makers stimulating these communities to take the necessary steps to foster the development of the offshore renewable energy sector in an environmentally sustainable way. The project brings together a combination of world class experts from a wide variety of multinational companies, research institutions, consultancies, utilities and project - European and pan developers. The project’s focus is pan - technology, with a specific focus on revealing the opportunities that exist across Europe when the three offshore renewable energy sectors within the project’s scope are considered together. Within the ORECCA Project, the scope of the offshore renewable energy sector (”offshore renewables”) was confined to: Offshore wind; Wave energy; and Tidal stream. These energy sectors have been identified as those that are currently expected to make significant contributions to the energy system in the medium to long term. As a result, other sectors, such as tidal barrage and ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) were not covered in the scope of the project. Produced by the University of Edinburgh on behalf of the ORECCA Project. AUTHORS: Henry Jeffrey & Jonathan Sedgwick CITATION: ORECCA European Offshore Renewable Energy Roadmap Published by the ORECCA Coordinated Action Project, September 2011 European Offshore Renewable Energy Roadmap EXECUTIVE SUMMARY & RECOMMENDATIONS This document represents for the first time a combined The roadmap is structured around five key streams which roadmap developed for the offshore wind, wave and tidal are essential to the development of the offshore stream energy sectors, focussed on the synergies, renewable energy sector. Each of these streams has a opportunities and barriers to development that are revealed dedicated chapter in the main roadmap document: when the sectors are investigated together in pan-technology and pan-European context.  Resource; The principal target audiences of the recommendations set  Finance; out are policy makers at the EU and Member State level. However, the recommendations and the way forwards set  Technology; out are also of high importance for other stakeholders to the offshore renewable energy sector.  Infrastructure;  Environment, Regulation & Legislation. Europe has a large amount of natural resource across the The roadmap‟s vision is to guide policy makers to three offshore renewable energy sectors. Technically support the accelerated development of the offshore offshore wind, wave and tidal together could supply renewable energy sector (offshore wind, wave and 100% of Europe‟s future electricity demand. These tidal energy) in Europe: resources present significant opportunities with respect to increased energy security, emissions reductions, and To identify synergies; economic benefits including job creation.
