Within the INTERREG Atlantic Area Project FANBEST (Funding Atlantic Network for Blue Economy Technology Transfer) an online transnational training programme composed by a series of webinars to enhance the capacity of advisers, support services, researchers and entrepreneurs in fundraising for technology transfer in the Blue Economy.
Renewable energy needs are expressed on all continents. The webminar will review these perspectives, the state of the art and the ambition of the European Union. The webminar will focus on the strengths of Offshore Wind and Ocean energy by making the link with the technologies developed in the Oil and Gas sector (theme #2). In particular, the assessment of world resources and the level of maturity of the main technologies will be presented: tidal energy, wave converters, ocean thermal energy converters and wind energy. The webminar will present shortly the principles of these technologies and will focus on the main ones: bottom fixed and floating wind turbines. In less than 30 years, offshore wind became a worldwide industry with one of the fastest growth rate of the energy sector. Current and planned developments will be presented. This webminar will also présent the advantages of the emerging technology of Floating Wind Turbines. An introduction to Multi-Use Offshore Platforms will be offered, in connection with theme #4.
