Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) has signed an agreement with Japan to formalize the collaboration on ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC), tidal, wave and current energy.

The signing ceremony took place last month as part of a seminar on ocean energy at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Tokyo.

During the seminar, which gathered around fifty researchers and industry experts, Henk Polinder from the Ocean Energy Platform of Delft University of Technology, Joost Kirkenier from Bluerise, Yasuyuki Ikegami from Saga University, and Takayuki Watanabe from Xenesys, gave a summary of their respective academic and commercial activities in the field.

They underlined the importance of international industry-academia collaboration and government policies in ocean energy.

After their presentations, a collaboration agreement was signed to formalize the mutual cooperation between the four parties.
