Through its Interreg 2 Seas Programme, Europe awards 5.9 million euros to the ENCORE project: Energising Coasts with Offshore Renewable Energy. The goal of the project is to advance the rapidly emerging ORE sector. With the ambition to become a global industry leader, the 2 Seas ORE sector needs support to successfully scale-up.

ENCORE offers advanced technical and business support services to accelerate the ORE sector in the 2 Seas region. As part of the service portfolio, international certification schemes will be applied to reduce risks and increase investor confidence and to attract new capital to the sector. An education & training programme will be developed to train and prepare new young talent in the sector. In each country, regional impact campaigns will be set up to involve the supply chain and stakeholders in the project.

Services will be delivered to five next-generation ORE companies, covering new technologies; river current technology: Water2Energy (NL) and EEL Energy, offshore floating solar: Oceans of Energy (NL) and wave energy: Teamwork Technology (NL) and Laminaria (BE).

To support the five ORE technologies, lead partner Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC) brings together project partners from 4 European countries: the European Marine Energy Centre (UK), Artelia (FR), Bureau Veritas (FR), Ghent University (BE), Inyanga (UK) and Deftiq (NL).
