The main objective of Ocean DEMO (Demonstration Programme for Ocean Energy Pilot Farms and Supporting Technologies) is to help North West Europe enterprises working in low carbon technology to accelerate their transition from single prototype to multi-device farms by providing free access to world-leading test centres.
For this purpose, the project consortium, which includes four test sites in the NWE region (DMEC, EMEC, SmartBay, SEM-REV), is happy to announce the 3rd Call for Applications for access to test sites to perform tests and validation of low carbon technologies.
This new call will focus on supporting technology developers with high readiness level for deployment in late 2020 or early 2021. Technology developers can apply for support packages to test multi-device farms or single devices able to scale up to multi-device in the future.
A webinar detailing the application process and support opportunities will take place in a few weeks.
The applications received will be checked for eligibility, evaluated by a User Selection Board and, if successful, granted aid to access the test site of the users’ choice by means of a Voucher.
The details of the call for projects are presented in the documents at the bottom of the page.
