Oceans powering the energy transition

The oceans are the world’s largest untapped source of renewable energy. Tides and waves have the potential to provide 10 per cent of Europe’s current electricity consumption by 2050, creating 400,000 jobs. Predictable and flexible ocean energy will be needed to complement variable wind and solar energy. Led by European companies, ocean energy is all set to become a new European industry that will help deliver the global energy transition. This presentation will explain why ocean energy is the next big thing in energy – and how to unleash the power of oceans.
