In collaboration with partners throughout Europe, DMEC has initiated an international Accelerator to advance marine energy technologies and companies from concept to commercial deployment. Through this accelerator, we provide technology- and business support to jointly shape marine energy solutions. We provide access to (open water) test facilities, to learn about the potential impacts while respecting local environments and communities. In collaboration with certification bodies we give support to apply standards and certification to increase bankability of technologies and to build on investor confidence. With our broad network, we enable developers to get in touch with investors, policy makers and end users to jointly shape the right conditions and accelarate marine energy solutions.
