Tracking progress 2020

Electricity generation from marine technologies increased an estimated 13% in 2019, which is significantly above the levels of the previous three years. Nevertheless, this technology needs to be deployed even more rapidly to get on track with the SDS, which requires much higher annual growth of 23% through 2030. Policies promoting R&D are needed to achieve further cost reductions and large-scale development.
