COME3T: first expert work

31/10/2018

Three submitted themes, restitution in few months

France Energies Marines recently launched a new project called COME3T, which it finances on its own because it is convinced of its relevance. What is the purpose of this project? Identify and analyse the environmental and socio-economic issues related to the establishment of marine renewable energy (MRE) parks in France. COME3T, a real reference body that can be consulted by any stakeholder, will make it possible to structure future R&D work and better anticipate recourse on these subjects.
    
The project integrates two committees into its operation. The first, the steering committee, defines the themes to be studied. It is made up of 10 industrial, academic and institutional partners. The second, the committee of neutral and independent experts, classifies the themes given by the steering committee and transmits recommendations
   
After a phase of constitution, the committee of experts received its first requests.

  • Theme Oceanic risks: Can French fixed offshore wind farms generate dangerous waves?
  • Theme Birds: Are the feedback from Northern Europe to assess the risks of wind farms on birds transposable to the French coasts?
  • Theme Habitats: Does the colonization of ORE parks facilitate the spread and  introduction of non‐native species?

Restitution in few months.
