Description

MaRINET2, the Marine Renewables Infrastructure Network, is composed of 39 organisations who collaborate to progress offshore renewable energy technologies in Europe. It aims to accelerate the development of wave, tidal and offshore wind energy technologies and infrastructure by opening up access to 57 test facilities across 13 European countries.

The project is now in its second iteration, and it is supported by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

Led by MaREI, the Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland at University College Cork, the project provides companies, entrepreneurs, start-ups and researchers with fully-funded access to marine energy experts and the world’s leading offshore energy test facilities. The project will also progress the standardisation of testing in the ocean energy sector.

The first MaRINET phase proved the value of the project during its 4.5 years’ lifespan by providing 700 weeks of access to 178 projects and 800 companies. This second phase will run from 2017 to 2021.
