Priorities for Ocean Energy

TPOcean has finalised a prioritisation of Research and Innovation challenges that need to be overcome for the ocean energy sector to move to commercialisation.

Twentynine challenges are categorised as related to either technology, finance or environment & socio-economics, and prioritised according to importance to the sector and the ability of TPOcean to contribute to solutions.

Fourteen of the 29 challenges identified are considered to need more urgent address. Six are technological, four relate to finance and four are socio-economic or related to the environment.

The remaining 15 identified challenges cannot be overlooked, but may be tackled with less urgency.
