European Marine Energy Players to Gather in Portugal

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) is hosting a session at the Atlantic Stakeholder Conference in Porto, Portugal next week (Tuesday, 20th January 2015).

Bringing the key players from European open-water ocean energy test sites together, the session will identify key issues of common interest across marine energy test sites, and share information to enable lessons to be learnt to speed up the development of new wave and tidal technologies.

Oliver Wragg, EMEC’s Commercial Director, will speak alongside:

  • Joaquín Hernández-Brito, Manager at the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN)
  • Anna Brito e Melo, Executive Director at WavEC Offshore Renewables (WavEC)
  • Izan Le Crom, MRE Project Manager at SEM-REV
  • John Breslin, General Manager at SmartBay Ireland

As part of the implementation of the Atlantic Action Plan, the European Commission invites stakeholders to share their practical knowledge and ideas at the Atlantic Stakeholder Platform conference. The stakeholder platform is to be an annual event and will be the central hub for stakeholders of the Atlantic Strategy to meet, greet, seek ways of cooperation, share information and secure funding.
