The first Annual Report for the Vattenfall’s Ocean Energy R&D Programme

Since 2006, Vattenfall AB R&D Projects has been investigating the potential for ocean energy to offer a major new renewable energy source. In 2009 Vattenfall established a formal ocean energy programme.

Ocean EnergyToday – six years later – a first annual report has been created for the Ocean Energy Development Programme (OEDP). This report describes 2011’s achievements of the OEDP, and additionally provides a comprehensive overview of Vattenfall’s position in the field of ocean energy.
