The energy challenges

The energy resources made available to us by the sea are considerable.
With 70% of the earth’s surface covered by oceans and two-thirds of the world’s population living less than 150 km from the coast, the sea represents an inexhaustible source of renewable energy that can satisfy the growing needs of the global population whilst at the same time ensuring a carbon-free footprint.

Naval Energies shares the vision and convictions of the United Nations expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals and relayed by the COP 21 Paris Agreement, which invites the planet’s countries and economic actors to “take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”, ensure access to “affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern” energy for all and “conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources”.

A committed actor in support of the development of marine energy, Naval Energies co-organised, in the frame of the United Nations Ocean Conference of June 2017, a presentation of the challenges faced in the Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) sector and its benefits in terms of effectiveness in the fight against climate change and the conservation of marine resources.

Naval Energies participates in the “Clean Energy for EU Islandsinitiative for the acceleration of the energy transition on over 2700 islands. Launched on 18 May 2017 by 14 EU member states, the project aims to define a global framework of support to reduce the dependence of islands on energy imports through the modernisation of energy systems and the more efficient use of locally-available renewable energy sources.

Transitioning small islands” in the frame of the launch of the
“Clean Energy for EU Islands” forum on 22 September 2017 in Crete.


The financing of the transition to renewable energy, according to the goals defined in the Paris Agreement, is a subject of prime importance for Naval Energies, which brings its technological expertise as a company that is locally committed to the reflection being undertaken by international authorities.



Naval Energies gives a presentation on the theme of “Building the sustainable blue economy of the future” in the frame of the “Our Ocean” international conference organised by the European Commission on 6 October 2017 in Malta.
