BLUE GROWTH

Blue Growth is the long term

strategy to support sustainable

growth in the marine and maritime sectors,

and is part of the

EU Directorate-General for

Maritime Affairs and Fisheries.

Ocean Energy is one of five sectors

identified as having high

potential and the Blue Growth

Strategy includes a two-step

action plan of support. The first

phase (2014 - 2016) is an Ocean

Energy Forum to develop a

strategic roadmap for action to

help the sector towards industrialisation. In the second phase (2017

- 2020) a European industrial initiative will be developed based on the

Forum's work. The Commission

may also develop sector-specific

guidelines to help in licensing

ocean energy projects.
