About us: Partners and funders



The European Ocean Energy Association (EU-OEA) is the official trade association for marine energy in Europe.

The European Commission established the European Ocean Energy Association in 2006 to provide a unified voice for the marine energy industry and to assist the Commission with marine energy policy development.

Headquartered in Brussels, the EU-OEA offers a coordinated approach to networking, lobbying and policy development at the heart of the European Union. The EU-OEA is currently working closely with the European Commission to ensure the right funding and support mechanisms are in place to accelerate growth in the marine energy sector and ensure the industry reaches its full potential.

As well as being actively involved in a number of European Commission projects, the European Ocean Energy Association hosts conferences, workshops and site visits, providing members and legislators with the opportunity to monitor commercial developments, assess emerging technologies and make new business contacts.
