Who we are

The Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) consists of 23 organisations from across Europe, bringing together NGOs, TSOs and the wind industry. Together we work towards a sustainable development of offshore energy infrastructure that protects our marine ecosystems.

OCEaN provides an open forum for discussion, where existing information and experiences are assessed and collated, needs for further research are identified and suggestions are made on how to improve planning offshore wind development for the European seas.
