Ocean DEMO is a €13m project targeting the installation of ocean energy devices in EU waters.  Its objective is to scale technologies up to multi-machine readiness by providing free access to Europe’s world-leading network of test centres and to drive innovation across the ocean energy supply chain.  To boost market uptake and confirm the potential of ocean energy to investors, Ocean DEMO will run a competitive voucher scheme supporting technology development through a combined transnational offering across NWE test infrastructures.

Funded by Interreg North-West Europe, Ocean DEMO is a €13m project aiming to accelerate ocean energy’s transition from single prototype to multi-device farms by providing free access to world-leading test centres: EMEC (UK), DMEC (NL), SEM REV (FR) and SmartBay (IE)
