The inaugural Marine Energy Wales conference will be held late in March in Swansea, UK.

The keynote address for the conference will be provided by Ken Skates, Wales’ Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, Marine Energy Wales informed.

Marine Energy Wales is a recently established Welsh marine industry body stemming from Marine Energy Pembrokeshire (MEP).

“With €100.4 million of EU structural funds prioritized for marine energy in Wales, two array scale demonstration zones, seabed agreements in place for three separate tidal projects and a number of proposals for tidal range projects, Wales has the potential to be a world-leader in the marine energy market,” Marine Energy Wales said.

The aim of Marine Energy Wales is create a thriving and diverse sustainable marine energy industry which will make a significant contribution to UK’s low carbon economy.

The conference will be held on March 30, 2017.
