IEA-OES Chairman (2021 – 2022):

"These long months of pandemic, with their impact on the lives of our loved ones, our health, our habits and even our certainties, have made us aware of the need to activate all the levers of the energy transition, including ocean energy for those countries that benefit from this opportunity along their shore. The multiple levers activated include:
  • powerful investment aid for all renewable energy solutions, however very few specific to ocean energy,
  • new policy frameworks that facilitate the deployment of ocean energy or hybrid systems. Indeed, more and more hybrid solutions, combining wave and wind energy or wave and solar photovoltaic energy, are developing rapidly."

In the annual report you can read about the achievements made in 2021, OES' activities, as well as reports from each member country.
