The government of France has launched preliminary studies that could result in a tender for tidal power in the country.
Secretary of State for Ecological and Inclusive Transition Sebastien Lecornu said the research is expected to conducted at tidal zones in Brittany and Normandy.
Industry organisation Ocean Energy Europe (OEE) said the news is good, but asked to issue the tender as soon as possible.
OEE chief executive Remi Gruet stated: A tender for tidal energy will see the first manufacturing plants come to France, creating a strong domestic industry, with significant export opportunities globally.
The French government has clearly recognised this opportunity and it will be up to the sector to demonstrate the readiness of the technology and the progress achieved in the first pilot farms.
He added that the OEE is looking forward to hold talks over the tender design with the government.
