Abstract: 

This report features information garnered from OES members. Specifically, this refers to the countries of Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Korea, Mexico, Monaco, Nigeria, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States of America giving the following report a wide geographic dimension.

 

The progress of ocean energy projects in all the OES member countries continues to face challenges in relation to consenting processes. This can be detrimental to the sector and may also lead to delays in realising operational projects with consequences for budgeting and real costs to developers.

 

Particular emphasis has been placed on investigating the main barriers associated with permitting and licensing with a view to advising regulators and decision-makers on the key needs of the ocean energy sector from consenting processes. Developers were also given the opportunity to provide their views and insights on barriers as experienced by them in consenting of their ocean energy projects to date.
