North of England Evening Meeting – Marine Energy Industry

20 November, 2019





A path to a globally successful marine energy industry

The European Marine Energy Centre, based in Orkney, has been operational for over 15 years.  As a full scale, grid-connected, marine energy converter test site, it has witnessed numerous prototype testing.

This presentation will cover some of the historic testing at EMEC, present testing and a look to the future.  The presentation will also look at the wider wave & tidal industry and opportunities for the supply chain that may come about.
