Territorial and regional contribution to the development of Offshore Renewables and Marine Energies

Hosted by SEArica Chair MEP Tonino Picula

Organised with the support of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions

28 September 2022 – 9:30-12:00 (CEST)


 Please find HERE the recording of the meeting 


Considering the current geopolitical situation, which demonstrates the need to achieve a greater energy autonomy in Europe and accelerate the energy transition, phasing out unsustainable sources, it is relevant to address questions and remove obstacles to the development of renewable energies. In particular, as evidenced in the EU’s Blue Growth Strategy, the Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy, the Blue Economy Report 2022, and the RePowerEU Communication published in May 2022, Offshore Renewable Energies (ORE) have an important role to play.

More research and investments are necessary to foster the development of offshore wind energy and to exploit the full potential of emerging sectors, such as ocean energy, while ensuring a sustainable use of natural resources and the protection of the marine environment.

With this event, the SEArica Intergroup aims at showcasing the contribution of the ORE sector to energy transition and discussing together with representatives from the EU institutions, regional authorities and relevant stakeholders about how to boost its development at EU level, overcoming current challenges and barriers.

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
