The conference programme for this event has been guided by a special International Committee comprised of wave & tidal industry leaders and associations lead by RenewableUK.
The conference will be opened by Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for Environment, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, in the first plenary session of the event. Three days of two parallel streams will then focus on ocean energy markets and technologies, along with poster sessions in all breaks and lunches.
