1 Colloque Croissance Bleue 25 Novembre 2013 Une contribution au développement des Energies Marines Renouvelables dans les territoires insulaires A contribution to the development of Marine Renewable Energies in Island communities Christophe Maisondieu Ifremer – Comportement des Structures en Mer

2 MERIFIC Project Overview Objectives Major topics addressed Some examples and results ©B. Stichelbaut

3 Ifremer is an EPIC: Public institute of an Industrial and Commercial nature. It is jointly supervised by the: Ministry of Higher Education and Research Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy Budget: 213 millions euros (80% from government) Staff: Ifremer Genavir (fleet operator) + ca. 200 non permanent staffs, docs and post-docs Ifremer alone represents about 50 % of the national effort in marine sciences Institut Français de Recherche pour lExploitation de la MER French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea

4 Marine Energy in Far peripheral and Island Communities Programme INTERREG France (Manche) – England ( ) Priority 4 : Ensure a sustainable environmental development of the common space Specific Objective 9 : Promote renewable energies Started: April 2011 End: 30 June 2014 MERiFIC

5 MERIFIC Partners: England: Cornwall Council University of Exeter University of Plymouth Cornwall Marine Network France: Conseil Général du Finistère Pôle Mer Bretagne Technopôle Brest Iroise Parc National Marin dIroise Bretagne Développement & Innovation IFREMER

6 Objectives: The MERIFIC project will seek to advance the adoption of marine energy across the two regions of Cornwall and Finistère, and the island communities of le Parc Naturel Marin dIroise and the Isles of Scilly. Project partners work together to identify the specific opportunities and issues faced by peripheral and island communities in exploiting marine renewable energy resources with the aim of developing tool kits and resources for use by other similar communities. MERIFIC

7 Activities: The project develops and delivers joint activities between the two regions and their island communities, looking at issues such as: Marine energy resource assessment/mapping; Policy issues and potential barriers to marine energy development; Business and commercial opportunities for island/mainland communities; Island/mainland interaction on appropriate infrastructure; Community and stakeholder engagement with key groups (e.g. fishing, wave farm developers, and investors). Pilot activities are targeted at the island communities of the Isles of Scilly (Cornwall) and Le Parc Naturel Marin dIroise (Finistère), with the aim of developing case studies and other deliverables that can help to inform the approach for similar island and peripheral communities. MERIFIC

8 7 Work Packages : WP1 : Project Preparation WP2 : Project Management & coordination WP3 : Technology Support / Soutien Technologique WP4 : Policy Issues / Politiques publiques et Réglementations WP5 : Sustainable economic development / Développement économique durable WP6 : Stakeholder Engagement / Acceptabilité sociale et implication de la société civile WP7 : Communication MERIFIC

9 WP3 : Technology Support Appui Technologique Task 3.1: Resource assessment and mapping Caractérisation et cartographie de la ressource Task 3.2: Literature review of environmental impacts Synthèse des documents existants sur limpact environnemental Task 3.3: Transfer and development of skills on environmental assessment Transfert et développement des compétences sur lévaluation environnementale Task 3.4: Test facilities Moyens dessais et de test Task 3.5: Dynamic behaviour of marine energy devices Comportement dynamique des dispositifs dénergie marine Task 3.6: Marine Operation Opérations Marines MERIFIC

10 WP3 : Resource assessment and mapping Resource assessment and mapping Modelling Resource Assessment for Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly Resource Assessment for Iroise Sea Measurement Modelling Equimar Swan + ERA 40 Buoys WWIII + CFSR Buoys+ HF Radar Application of Equimar protocols Comparison of methods Comparisons of models

11 Iroise Sea Area extension : 2° longitude x 1.5° latitude Main operational harbour : Brest Most areas can be reached within 6 hours at 15 knots. Investigated areas: FromVeur (Tidal) Baie dAudierne (Waves) An Energetic Area Brest Ouessant

12 Seasonal variability Iroise Sea

13 WP4 : Policy Issues Politiques publiques et Réglementations 4.1 Policy and regulatory frameworks Politiques publiques et cadre réglementaire 4.2 Application of support instruments Mise en place des dispositifs de soutien 4.3 Safety risk management Gestion des risques en matière de sécurité Resource assessment and mapping

14 WP4 : Policy Issues 4.1 Policy and regulatory frameworks Politiques publiques et cadre réglementaire A questionnaire was addressed to a panel of french MRE stakeholders so as to assess their opinions on the policy and regulatory frameworks that can be applied to the development of MRE. Questionnaire delt with: Adaptation of public policy for the development of MRE National support instruments European support instruments Promotion of MRE and networking Call for tender procedures Regulatory frameworks Regional support Education and research ….. Resource assessment and mapping

15 WP4 : Policy Issues 4.1 Policy and regulatory frameworks Politiques publiques et cadre réglementaire Opinion of French MRE stakeholders on the efficiency of national and european public support instruments: Resource assessment and mapping

16 WP5 : Sustainable economic development Développement économique durable 5.1 Supply chain development Développement dune chaîne de production 5.2 Procurement code of practice Code pour les pratiques dapprovisionnement 5.3 Skills development Développement de compétences 5.4 Economic development strategy Stratégie de développement économique 5.5 Structural simulation of the marine energy sector Simulations structurelles du secteur des énergies marines 5.6 Infrastructure 5.7 Ports Resource assessment and mapping

17 WP5 : Sustainable economic development 5.3 Skills development Développement de compétences Personnel with relevant skills is a key element in the supply chain as MRE are expected to create job opportunities accros a wide range of sectors. It is recommanded to improve the communication so as to increase the awareness on regional existing strengths in terms of training schemes and facilities to promote a sustainable economic development of MRE. Primary target audience : MRE stakeholders : Resource assessment and mapping

18 WP5 : Sustainable economic development 5.3 Skills development Développement de compétences Key messages to be disseminated: MRE is an attractive sector (rapid development, cutting-edge technologies, career opportunities) Regional territories of Cornwall and Finistere possess substantial capacities to train people Regional territories of Cornwall and Finistere possess number of facilities to support the development of MRE. Resource assessment and mapping

19 WP6 : Stakeholder Engagement Acceptabilité sociale et implication de la société civile 6.1 Review and sharing of best practices approaches Synthèse et partages des bonnes pratiques\approches existantes 6.2 Developing new methods Actions pilotes innovantes Resource assessment and mapping

20 WP6 : Stakeholder Engagement Acceptabilité sociale et implication de la société civile Engaging stakeholders in the development of Renewable Marine energy projects need to take into account six key aspects : Start stakeholders engagement as early as possible Ensure that relevant information is made available to all stakeholders Develop a sound platform of exchange (going beyond minimal requirements) Illustrate as clearly as possible the potentential impacts and benefits of the project and generate realistic expectations Create direct opportunities for local bussinesses by linking them to the project from the conception to the production Financial participation to renewable Marine energy project from stakeholder to shareholder Resource assessment and mapping

21 MERIFIC A good example of bilateral collaboration Development of Marine Renewable in Island territories Protocols and outcomes can benefit to other far peripheral communities
