BLUE-GIFT opens 2nd call for applications for ocean energy demonstration

Successful applicants will be able to test their ocean energy technologies in real-sea conditions

The main goal of Blue-GIFT (Blue growth and innovation fast tracked) is to help Atlantic Area enterprises to test marine renewable energy technologies in real sea environment and to enable power to be economically generated from the ocean.

For this purpose, the project consortium launches the 2nd call for applications from the 20th of January until de 30th of April 2020, to access the test sites in four areas in the Atlantic Area region. The access will allow developers to perform low cost tests and the validation of marine renewable energy technologies in real sea environment. The successful applicants will be recommended for a Support Package Voucher, which will facilitate low cost access to the test site under the terms of the access contract to be negotiated with the Access Provider.

All  information about the eligible entities and the application process is available on the project website: http://bluegift.eu/2nd-call/.

In the first call nine companies have been granted with the Blue-GIFT support for their technologies.

Blue-GIFT project is coordinated by the European Marine Energy Centre (UK) and gathers 7 partners from 5 countries. It has a budget of approximately €2.5 million until 2021.
