EU funding for offshore renewables

Overview of EU funding programmes relevant to finance offshore renewable energy projects. 

There is a big variety of EU funding programmes to finance energy projects, those particularly relevant for offshore renewable energy (wind and ocean) are presented below, as well as in a document which provides an overview of the various instruments, which is updated regularly. For each programme listed, there is also information about eligible investments, previously funded offshore projects and how different EU programmes can be combined.

As a general rule, when combining multiple EU funding instruments, state aid rules apply and double funding of the same elements within one project is not possible (meaning that the co-financing rate exceeds 100%).
