Ocean Energy Systems (OES) has published a new report on consenting processes for ocean energy. 

The report outlines the main barriers and recommendations of the consenting process for ocean energy based on the OES collection of information from its member countries and from interviews with developers.

Specifically, the report features information garnered from OES members from 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.

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, the report says.

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.

The report is available free of charge at OES website.
