Marine energy conversion programme announced

The Swedish Energy Agency is planning to launch a programme on generating power from marine resources, such as wind and wave energy.

The 53 million Swedish kronor (€5.7m) research programme is expected to run between 2015 and 2018. The aim is to strengthen the sustainable electricity system and to promote collaboration between academia and industry, the energy agency said in a statement on 3 December.

“There are great opportunities for Sweden in marine energy conversion, both in the development of Swedish export products and in renewable electricity within the Nordic electricity market,” said Erik Brandsma, director of the energy agency. “Marine energy, such as wave and current force, provide relatively stable and predictable electricity and can have an important future role.”
