The Mediterranean Sea region is becoming increasingly interested in the application of clean energy technologies, both on- and offshore.
Therefore, there is a need to identify the potential for a joint regional effort in developing offshore energy and supporting grid infrastructure, following similar studies for the North and Baltic Seas. The geographical scope of this study includes nine European
Union (EU) member states in the Mediterranean region: Croatia, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Spain, Portugal.
The analysis covered five energy technologies: offshore wind (bottom-fixed and floating technologies), wave and tidal energy, onshore wind, and solar technologies in islands. This final study presents the results of the analysis followed by a broad stakeholder consultation.
