An accelerator project aiming to develop and deploy large-scale marine energy pilots, OESA is a transnational partnership under the lead of the Dutch Marine Energy Centre. It will combine expertise from six European countries from the North Sea region.
The following three goals will accommodate a larger number of technology deployments in the future:
OESA is made up of thirteen organisations specialising in offshore engineering, market development, ocean energy testing and technology development. Five of the Alliance’s members are technology developers, ensuring that work is tailored towards serving the industry’s most pressing challenges. Together with the eight service providers, they are analysing and defining services that will lead to the development of five technology pilots.
The service providers are combining their expertise to offer a portfolio that covers both technological and commercial services. Not only will this lead to the acceleration of the technology pilots, but also ensure the sustainable growth of technology companies.
Through its international collaboration, OESA strives to build and develop the ocean energy sector, share lessons learned, and ultimately lead to the deployment of more renewable energy projects in the North Sea region.
