The recommendations made by ETIP Ocean after the webinar clearly tie into the aims of ORJIP Ocean Energy:

·       Guidance is required in terms of where environmental focus needs to be. Clear methodologies for environmental monitoring and assessment need to be developed. These should be developed by academia and passed along to industry.

·       Ocean energy developer should be encouraged to fit their devices with as many monitoring sensors as financially possible to increase data collection.
