Blue Energy Deployment Alliance
The MED area will include blue energy (BE) in maritime planning and governance, thanks to BLUE DEAL project. Given the early stage of blue energy technologies, proper information to deliver consistent strategies, plans and regulations in the blue energy sector are still missing this often compromises public-private initiatives for exploiting marine renewable energy and discourages investments. The scope of BLUE DEAL is to overcome current technical and administrative restrictions for BE deployment and define proper requirements and procedures to support decisions and guarantee compliance with regulatory, environmental and social constraints.
