Interreg MED Modular project - BLUE DEAL - "Blue Energy Deployment Alliance"

The MED area will include Blue Energy (BE) in maritime planning and governance, thanks to BLUE DEAL project. Given the early stage of BE technologies, proper information to deliver consistent strategies, plans and regulations in the BE sector are still missing; this often compromises public-private initiatives for exploiting marine renewable energy and discourages investments. The project’s aim is to overcome current technical and administrative restrictions for BE deployment and define proper requirements and procedures to support decisions and guarantee compliance with regulatory, environmental and social constraints. BLUE DEAL foresights a series of transnational Labs to involve multi-sectorial stakeholders, perform participative planning processes and establish public-private alliances through open innovation actions.
