We are committed to the sustainable development of Ireland's abundant ocean energy resources.

Research Funding

The world's oceans contain vast quantities of untapped renewable energy. Ireland is ideally placed to harness these resources and benefit from the considerable potential for economic growth and job creation. 

SEAI’s National Energy Research Development and Demonstration (RD&D) Funding Programme and the OCEANERA-NET COFUND Project aims to stimulate the development of ocean energy devices and systems.
