DMEC: Dutch Marine Energy Centre

DMEC will create a knowledge-platform for small and medium enterprises active in the field of technological development for the sustainable extraction of energy from water –such as wave energy, tidal energy and energy extraction from salinity gradients.

DMEC will develop knowledge and stimulate knowledge programs regarding marine Energy. The platform will facilitate the access to the expertise and the research facilities of MUST (Deltares, NIOZ, Wageningen Marine Research and TNO) regarding the deployment of technologies in maritime environments as well as the assessment and management of their environmental impact. An important part of the project will be dedicated to a “Valorisation Acceleration program”, where the enterprises will focus on specific product development processes in close cooperation with the research institutes.
