Abstract: Located in the Indian Ocean, the overseas French region Reunion Island is a tropical island with the advantage to have very specific and substantial resources for marine energy.

Thanks to its characteristics and because of ambitious targets of the regional council to become self-sufficient in energy by 2030, Reunion Island has become a French experimental key laboratory in marine energy. Seven innovative projects are thus planned
to develop “usual” ocean energy but also exceptional one like the OTEC or osmotic energies.

Reunion Island has also recently been mentioned as associate partner and overseas representative for the French technological platform for marine energy that will be built in Brest (Bretagne), as announced by the French prime minister on last December 2009.
