Seven projects to test with the PORTOS project on novel marine renewable energy technologies

About PORTOS Project

PORTOS (Ports Towards Energy Self-Sufficiency) aims to promote the implementation of wave, tidal and wind energy, at Atlantic Area ports, as to impact two environmental priorities: reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and air pollution by providing renewable energy-based solutions to harvest the renewable energy potential of Atlantic Area coastal areas.

PORTOS also aims to assess, develop and promote the integrated use of renewable energy resources in Atlantic Area ports and increase their energy efficiency, establishing a roadmap to a more competitive and sustainable sector.

Further Information

There will be a second call for the following test facilities commencing in September 2020.

  • Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Spain – wave/current flume;
  • Ecole d’Ingenieurs en Genie des Systemes Industriels, France – technical assessment of novel technologies.
  • Universidad de Oviedo, Spain – numerical modelling of novel technologies
