Project description

Gen4Wave is an action plan related to wave and tidal energy. The plan has been developed by Ghent University upon request of Generaties, a working group positioning Flanders in the field of renewable energy production. Gen4Wave wants to ensure that Flemish industries can position themselves within the value chain of wave and tidal energy. There is still quite some potential to operate in this value chain given the fact that the market has not yet been consolidated.



Gen4WaveThe partnership consists of major players both from academia, industry and government. The plan has three pillars.



Gen4Wave Coastal and Ocean Basin (COB)



Gen4Wave Energy Platform
