The sector in which we work
In addition to sun and wind, water is an important source of renewable energy. The marine energy sector focuses on energy extraction from our rivers, seas and oceans. Think of the energy that can be generated from marine currents, tidal or wave movements and the differences in temperature and salinity of water. The generation of energy from water will play an essential role in the global energy transition and contributes to achieving international climate goals and sustainable growth.
