Blue-GIFT opens 1st call for applications for ocean energy demonstration
Successful applicants will be able to test their ocean energy technologies in real-sea conditions
Blue-GIFT (Blue Growth and Innovation Fast Tracked) project is a coordinated ocean energy technology demonstration programme encouraging longer-term demonstration and technology de-risking across the Atlantic Area regions.
With a €2.5 million budget, Blue-GIFT is pleased to announce the 1st call for applications to support package vouchers to ocean energy companies for access to demonstration sites across the Atlantic Area, lowering costs for testing and validating technologies in real sea environments. The project aims to support a minimum of eight floating wind, wave or tidal demonstration related projects across the Atlantic Area region.
Which test centres can you apply to?
A series of test site access vouchers will be offered to successful applicants to support testing of devices and subsystems at the following test centres:
- BiMEP (wave and floating wind) in the Basque Country, Spain;
- PLOCAN (wave and floating wind) in Gran Canaria, Spain;
- SEENEOH (hydrokinetic and tidal) in Bordeaux, France;
- WavEC (wave and floating wind test centre) in Aguçadoura, Portugal.
Who can apply?
Blue-GIFT is open to any type of enterprise wishing to demonstrate ocean energy technologies in real-sea conditions. The applicant must own the technology (or rights to the technology) being tested or validated.
The call will close on the 6th September 2019 at 17:00 UTC. For detailed information please visit http://bluegift.eu/1st-call/
Blue-GIFT project is led by European Marine Energy Centre (UK) and is composed of 7 institutions from the 5 Members States. It will run from November 2018 to October 2021.
