Dutch Marine Energy Centre

Energy generated from water is sustainable, reliable and predictable, and is therefore complementary to intermittent solar and wind energy generation. The Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC) is consultant and project developer in the Marine Energy sector. We deliver technical and commercial support services to companies in order to fast-track their commercialisation and growth strategies. Services include design and engineering support, demonstration and deployment support, business case and strategy development, and certification.Furthermore, we initiate international collaborations between technology developers, knowledge institutes and large offshore organisations in order to jointly implement innovation and demonstration projects. For example, we coordinate the Marine Energy Alliance where companies gain access to best-available expertise throughout Europe. In addition, we coordinate the MET-CERTIFIED project where European organisations work together on establishing internationally recognised standards for certification. This creates the right conditions for the development of more insurable and bankable marine energy projects.
