BlueGIFT (Blue Growth and Innovation Fast Tracked)
36 month project (2018-2021)
Interreg Atlantic Area
Blue-GIFT will implement a coordinated ocean energy technology demonstration programme that encourages longer term demonstration and technology de-risking across the Atlantic Arc regions. Blue-GIFT will leverage the skills, processes and expertise developed in the Interreg NWE FORESEA programme to drive forward the marine energy sector in the Atlantic Arc.
The development of ocean energy in these regions will help stimulate economic development whilst developing a domestic sustainable energy source to reduce carbon emissions. The project aims to support a minimum of eight floating wind, wave or tidal demonstration related projects across the Atlantic Arc region.
