Marine Energy Event 2017, along with both EWA and DMEC are proud of the program and speaker line-up for the event this year. With a focus on the conditions for commercial success, divided over three topical sessions and a panel discussion, this is an event not to be missed!
The marine energy industry has a role to play in the EU electricity supply by 2050. This requires advancement in the certification and verification of technologies in order to access commercial funding.
The Marine Energy Event, organized in cooperation with the Dutch Energy from Water Association (EWA) and Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC), presents the latest developments in international marine energy projects, environmental monitoring, testing infrastructure, offshore safety and construction, and the evolving trends and export markets of this sector.
