WHAT IS THE BLUE ENERGY PRODUCTION IN PORTS (BEPPo) PROJECT?

Energy is a sector that may act as future driver for competitiveness in Europe. The €597,300 BEPPo project (www.beppoproject.eu), 50% co-financed by the Interreg IVB North Sea Region transnational collaboration Programme, focuses on Blue Energy (wave/tidal) and its complementarity with traditional (gas/oil/coal) & new (wind/biomass) sources of power, building on the innovation capacity of ports to become bases for the production of integrated sustainable renewables, thus ensuring reliable and affordable supplies of clean, green energy. It provides a unique opportunity to develop marine energy platforms in ports and promote local business opportunities to accelerate economic growth in port regions.

PARTNERS:   Port of Oostende, Ghent University (Belgium); Highland and Islands Enterprise (UK); Aalborg University, Danish Wave Energy Centre (Denmark); Sintef Energi, Marintek (Norway)
