France Energies Marines

France Energies Marines is based on three interacting fields of activity:

  • Research and development devoted to MREs

  • Sites for testing and validation of demonstrators

  • A resource and training centre

These clusters are developed through theme-based research programmes with a cross-cutting approach to MRE technologies. In fact, technologies in the value chain have reached varying degrees of maturity. For fixed-bottom offshore wind power, there is already a good degree of maturity and significant feedback on their track record from Northern Europe. For tidal stream and floating wind turbines, and even wave turbines, demonstrators have been connected to the grid. In this context, the scientific issues and technological obstacles (resources, moorings, seaworthiness and resistance to seawater, and so on) are approached in such a way that the most advanced generic solutions can benefit all MREs.
