EUROPEWAVE PROJECT CALL 2021

A new opportunity for wave energy developers to advance their technology. Deadline is April 7, 2021.

The EuropeWave project aims to accelerate the design, development, and demonstration of cost-effective wave energy converter (WEC) systems to produce clean electricity.  The procurement process will select the best technologies across three key challenge areas: performance, reliability & survivability, and affordability.

This innovative procurement process will award R&D service contracts to developers as part of a three-stage process. A competitive call for tender will be open to wave energy developers, initially to participate in the first stage of ‘concept development.’ After each stage is completed, the best of the competing solutions will be selected to progress to the following phase. 

Addressed to: Wave energy developers.
