The European Regional Development Fund project runs the third and final call for applications to test and validate marine renewable energy (MRE) technologies. The deadline will be on the 23rd of April 2021 at 17:00 UTC.
Blue-GIFT is a €2.5M European Regional Development Fund project that aims to help Atlantic Area companies test the next generation of Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) technology in real sea environments and prove power can be economically generated from the ocean.
Funded by Interreg Atlantic Area, the Blue-GIFT project is helping technology developers test their MRE devices in the Atlantic Area test sites: BiMEP (Basque Country, Spain), PLOCAN (Canary Island, Spain), SEENEOH (Bordeaux, France), and WavEC (Aguçadoura, Portugal).
So far, the Blue-Gift project has supported four companies to deploy their devices in real sea conditions at test sites in the Atlantic Area including: Arrecife, Design Pro Renewables, Wave Piston and RW Power.
More technology developers will deploy in the coming months using Blue-Gift support, but a few vouchers are still available. If you want to be part of the Blue-Gift success story and test your device, get in touch with Blue-GIFT through this site: https://bluegift.eu/blue-gift-3rd-call-deadline-extension/.
