The Small Island Sustainable Energy and Climate Resilience Organization (SIDS DOCK) in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Stimson Center Alliance for a Climate Resilient Earth (ACRE) are launching the Global Ocean Energy Alliance (GLOEA) during a side event at the UN Ocean Conference on 29 June 2022, in Lisbon, Portugal. The initiative is being initiated with support of the Governments of Austria and Norway under the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres Program (GN-SEC). The event will also be live streamed online to engage more participants in a hybrid format.
The side event follows up to two high-level events where Heads of State and Government from Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developing Countries (LDCs) made two appeals for a Call To Action! for the Establishment of the Global Ocean Energy Alliance (GLOEA), at the sixth session of the Assembly of SIDS DOCK, held on the margins of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), on 28 September 2021, and on the margins of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of Parties (COP26), on 11 November 2021, in Glasgow, Scotland. It also connects to the Side Event “Establishing an Ocean Energy Platform as a Market Place to Support SIDS and Coastal Nations to Deploy Ocean Energy Systems“, organised at the 2021 Vienna Energy Forum (VEF).
