Ocean energy photography exhibition set for Brussels

An exhibition presenting the ocean energy industry’s most striking photography will take place in Brussels as part of 2017 EU Sustainable Energy Week.

Ocean energy technologies are visually captivating, due to their hi-tech nature and exciting operational environment – the sea.

This photo exhibition will present a snapshot of an industry in take-off mode, following breakthrough pre-commercial deployments in 2016 and 2017, according to the organizer Ocean Energy Europe (OEE).

“European companies are global leaders in ocean energy, accounting for 66% of tidal patents, and 44% of wave energy patents globally. Ocean energy is a new industrial sector, which like offshore wind, will bring significant jobs and economic development in the regions concerned and across Europe,” OEE said.

The exhibition provides an opportunity for engagement with the OEE Board, the most senior representatives of Europe’s ocean energy industry, who will be present at on opening reception on June 19.

The exhibition will run until June 30, 2017, while the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2017 will take place in Brussels from June 20-22, 2017.
