The project addresses the conditions in which the process of transition to a sustainable energy system can also drive the transformation of existing (often declining) industries, focusing on the construction of a new system around marine renewable energy technologies and its contribution to the development of a Sea Economy in Portugal.


The research addresses the process of development of new sustainable energy systems, focusing on the interaction between the emerging technologies and adjacent industries that can offer complementary competences. It investigates the process of (re)combination of new and existing knowledge that takes place along the creation of a new value chain and that can bring about industrial transformation. The implications of these processes for regional development are equally examined.
