Three renewable energy developers have been awarded recommendations for support so far.

The EU-funded FORESEA programme has awarded a “Recommendation for Support” to three offshore renewable energy projects under call 4, following an interim review. This award will allow developers to prove their technologies in real sea conditions. Call 4 closes on 29th June 2018.
