Cantabria will be an experimental laboratory on renewable energy from waves

Cantabria will be an experimental laboratory on renewable energy from waves, after an agreement with the Balearic Islands.

Cantabria will become, after an agreement with the Balearic Islands, an "experimental laboratory" for the generation of energy from the force of the waves.

The community will be the scenario chosen to develop a pilot test of the ROE (Renewable Ocean Energy) project, an initiative promoted by the Maritime and Logistics Cluster of the Balearic Islands, the company ROE and Sunwa Technologies and the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) that It aims to generate renewable energy from the wave force of sea waves.

The General Director of Industry, Energy and Mines of Cantabria, Daniel Alvear, and the Vice President and Minister of Energy Transition of the Balearic Islands, Juan Pedro Yllanes, discussed this future collaboration between both autonomous communities this Tuesday in Palma de Mallorca to promote the energy transition in the coastal territories.

The meeting, where the maritime clusters of both autonomous communities, Ocean Renewable Energy and the UIB, have been present, has been developed in the context of the seminar 'Reduction of energy costs for the application of new technologies', which has been inaugurated by Yllanes.

Alvear has pointed out that, in terms of marine renewables, Cantabria has an outstanding track record, in addition to being, as he has said, "an area of priorities" for the regional government within intelligent strategic planning.
