The aim is to facilitate a forum gathering the entrepreneurs, developers and suppliers who are actively involved in Danish wave energy projects. The forum is established by The Danish Partnership for Wave Energy and the intension is to make this the official body representing the industry. Furthermore, the aim is to elaborate, maintain and constantly improve a common roadmap and strategy plan in order to coordinate activities
The intentions of the partnership is to ensure that the Danish test center, DanWEC, provides developers with the necessary support and also prepares input to and participates in European standardization workgroups.
The purpose is also to ensure further development of wave power through industrial partnerships. The partners will cooperate to implement the strategy, contribute to the establishment of projects and cooperation in accordance with the prioritized development areas.
In addition the partnership works to optimise the coordination of various external activities for wave energy development – i.e. joint meetings, conferences, etc.
Currently the partnership applies for funding from the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP).
The Partnership for Danish Wave Energy - Strategy Follow-up runs for three years. The objective is to ensure the necessary interaction between ocean energy developers and industrial companies in the development and deployment of wave energy in Denmark.
We will establish strategic working groups within prioritised areas of technology as described in the partnership strategy from 2012 and the partnership Roadmaps from 2015.
These strategic monitoring groups each represent a Work Package (AP). The AP are as follows:
Danish developers working with wave energy, universities and players on the market interested in wave energy.
Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation;
Innovation and development activities. Establishment of DanWEC, the Danish test center for Wave Energy. Dissemination of breaking news.
Co-ordination, website, reports, strategic reports and communication - application ongoing.
