Backed by the Dutch Ministry of Economics and Climate, nine Dutch research institutes and test facilities join forces to accelerate the development of offshore renewable energy (ORE) research.
Kicking-off early December 2021, the NL-MARINERG-i consortium will provide significant support to European targets for ORE and key priorities such as the Green Deal. The support for the consortium by the Dutch Government emphasizes the important role of ORE research in reaching Europe’s net zero targets. NL-MARINERG-i is part of the European MARINERG-i consortium, which has been selected as one of the eleven key priorities of the European research roadmap ESFRI - European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures 2021.
Under the lead of DMEC (Dutch Marine Energy Centre), the consortium consists of Deltares, MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands), HZ University of Applied Sciences, NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, TNO, NLR - Netherlands Aerospace Centre), DNW - German-Dutch Wind Tunnels, Technische Universiteit Delft and Wageningen University & Research.

The Dutch Approach
The Netherlands is world wide renowned for its water technologies and is home to a variety of offshore design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance companies. This centralized know-how coupled with an innovative attitude gave rise to a strong marine energy and offshore floating solar PV sector.
