Ireland: ICOE Kicks-Off Today
The 4th International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) has opened today at the Convention Centre Dublin. The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), in association with the European Ocean Energy Association have organised this event.
Around 900 international experts and world-leading companies in ocean energy from Australia, Europe and the United States have gathered in Ireland’s capital city. Global industry and academic experts in marine renewable energy will present over a hundred papers on themes important to growing this new marine industry. The conference provides an opportunity for a trade exhibition where many of the top industrial players will demonstrate the latest technologies in harnessing renewable energy from the sea.
The International Conference on Ocean Energy is the global marine energy event focused on the industrial development of renewable marine energy. Held every two years, the goal of the conference and exhibition is to share recent experiences from research and demonstration efforts. It aims to accelerate development by stimulating collaboration networks between companies and research and development centres. It also specifically targets engagement of the experience of operators in related marine and power industry sectors.
The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) is hosting this important conference with the European Ocean Energy Association’s (EU-OEA) as partner in organising the substantial exhibition. After successful events in maritime centres, Brest and Bilbao, SEAI and the IEA Ocean Energy Systems Implementing Agreement (OES-IA) have brought event to Dublin’s portside city centre. In the decade in which ocean energy will become a significant player in electricity generation, job creation, and a bright hope for the future of our planet, the fit with Ireland’s clean energy and economic goals makes this Dublin event unmissable.
