The potential of marine renewable energy (MRE) is considerable, thanks to a range of more or less mature technologies. However, the exploitation of MRE also depends on numerous parameters linked to the ocean itself (available resources, technically and economically exploitable potential, environment and ecosystems) but also to its users (fishermen, sailors) and local residents.
SML & marine renewable energy
We assist project owners and strategy managers in the maritime and coastal integration of MRE.
- environmental integration: integration into marine ecosystems, compatibility with environmental policies and regulations, particularly European ones, whether at the strategic level or at the project level (impact study);
- social or societal integration: beyond "acceptability", this involves analysing the issues for each of the existing or future stakeholders, and taking them into account in a fully integrated approach; We develop in-depth analyses of maritime activities in the area of MRE park projects (land-based and floating wind turbines, tidal turbines) with a view to managing risks and potential conflicts;
- energy integration: MREs must be integrated into an existing energy system, for reasons of supply and demand, transport, network and energy carriers.
