Transforming Underutilized Renewable Natural Resource into Key Energy Yields


Countries in the Atlantic Areas have a massive potential to exploit wave and tidal power. These substantial resources present an opportunity to build a world leading industry with significant benefits. A thriving marine renewable energy industry would revitalise the wealth of its maritime legacy. The benefits of securing a productive ocean energy industry would boost renewable energy generation, help achieve EU carbon reduction targets, maintain security of supply, and deliver economic benefits of employment and investment.

TURNKEY is a transnational cooperation project which will exploit the renewable energy potential of the marine and coastal environment in a sustainable manner whilst ensuring economic vitality, community well-being and environmental integrity, delivering:


    • Market driven incentives to enable innovation and investment with long term feed in tariffs as a standard approach



  • Provide outlook and planning for Infrastructure



  • Support the creation of simplified licensing of marine renewable energy



  • Clear standardized procedures in all EU waters



  • Pooling of resources and a transnational network of knowledge
