Marine Energy Event Program Conditions for commercial success

Marine Energy Event

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.
