MARINERG-i  presented at ICOE on 14th June 2018 and briefed Minister Denis Naughten (Irish Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment) on the project.



Partners have joined together to complete the studies required to determine a comprehensive vision and model for this pan-European Research Infrastructure for Offshore Renewable Energy.


Vision & Mission

MARINERG-i will produce a scientific and business plan for an integrated European Research Infrastructure, designed to facilitate the future growth and development of the Offshore Renewable Energy sector. This plan will ensure that the MARINERG-i Research Infrastructure model attains the criteria necessary for being successful in an application to European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) roadmap in 2020.

MARINERG-i is a first step in forming an independent legal entity of distributed testing infrastructures, united to create an integrated centre for delivering Offshore Renewable Energy. By consolidating expertise, investment and access to infrastructures, the MARINERG-i Research Infrastructure will foster innovation across a variety of technologies and stages of development. As the only integrated Offshore Renewable Energy platform of this scale worldwide, it will be the epicentre of this developing industry.


  • Our vision is to ensure that MARINERG-i will accelerate the research, development and deployment of offshore wind, wave, tidal and combined energy technologies and maintain Europe as a global leader in this industry.
