Activity

European Marine Board Working Group on Marine Renewable Energy

Description

EMB activity on marine renewable energy would seek to provide an update on status and recommendations related to this topic since the 2010 EMB Vision Document 2, to highlight the current knowledge and research gaps in marine science, including in relation to the impact of marine renewable energy systems on marine ecosystems, and to consider future implications as this sector continues to mature. In particular, it would highlight key research needs and opportunities in support of the EU’s Green Deal and the future EU Strategy for Offshore Renewable Energy ambitions of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and provide a scientific perspective to planned large-scale expansions in for example EU offshore wind installations.
