Ocean Líder, a consortium of 20 companies and 25 research centres, led by Iberdrola Ingenieria y Construcción, is the world's biggest research project aimed at renewable ocean energies. The project has met the initial objectives of developing the necessary disruptive technologies for the implementation of integrated renewable energy installations at sea.
