Seven cluster organisations representing small and large companies, start-ups and research institutions from five countries around the North Sea are trying to secure more EU funding for green energy related innovation projects in the region.

The groups from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and Denmark last week signed a manifesto during an event in the Danish port of Esbjerg that is also aiming to foster more supply chain collaboration in wind, energy islands, power-to-x, carbon capture and storage, and sector coupling.
