Offshore Wind Meets….Wave & Tidal

Event Date: Wednesday April 25, 2018
Event Time: 8.00-11.00
Event Venue: OrbisEnergy

We are currently seeing an unprecedented level of development and construction within the offshore wind sector. With the greater level of construction the questions arise as to the possibility of integrating other marine renewables together with offshore wind. This integration presents a number of advantages, including a better utilisation of the marine space and lower installation costs. 

We know there is significant overlap between offshore wind and wave and tidal energy when it comes to the supply chain, regulatory issues, and the operating environment. Offshore wind projects operate in harsh marine environments and development presents many of the same challenges and benefits. 

You will hear from the Sector Lead of Wave & Tidal Energy, ORE Catapult on where this industry has got to and what the innovation challenges are. Information on the supply chain, market gaps and cost reduction challenges.

In addition, Renewable UK on the Opportunity – a focus on the state of industry for offshore wind and marine energy systems in the UK.
