ELBE, Europe Leading Blue Energy

ELBE is an EU-funded project that aims to contribute positioning Europe as the world technological and industrial leader in Blue Energy, with a special focus on floating offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.

ELBE gathers five European clusters with top expert companies and R&D organizations in Blue Energy to tackle the expansion of this sector beyond Europe

ELBE offers new opportunities to SMEs in offshore energy to share technology, establish alliances and create new business models across different sectors

Initially, ELBE will focus on consolidating the European alliance with the aim to develop strategic collaborations with companies and R&D entities in other leading countries throughout the world
