MET-CERTIFIED stands for “Development of International Standards and Certification Schemes for Marine Energy Technologies“. It is an approved Interreg 2 Seas project (period 2016-2020) under the programme priority “Low carbon technologies”, and runs from 01/09/2016 until 31/12/2019.
MET-CERTIFIED aims to increase the adoption of insurable and therefore bankable marine energy projects -such as tidal and wave energy- in he 2 SEAS region. This will be done through developing internationally recognised standards and certification schemes in the sector.
The project consortium brings together 10 partners from 4 European countries. Moreover 17 observer partners signed a LOI to express their believe in MET-CERTIFIED.
MET-CERTIFIED is funded by the European Interreg 2 Seas programme and is cofinanced by the European Fund for Regional Development (ERFD) under grant agreement No 2S01-020 for the period September 2016 – December 2019. Also the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Netherlands, Province of South-Holland and North-Holland and the Belgian Province of West Flanders are offering financial support.
