International three-day course on tidal and wave energy, salinity gradient power and ocean thermal energy will be held in the Netherlands in October.

The course will look at the resource potential and the business case for various marine energy technologies, as well as offer information about the latest innovations taking place in tidal energy, wave energy, salinity gradient power and OTEC.

The course will be held in the Netherlands, starting from October 5, and will present insights from the people who worked on several Dutch ocean energy projects such as floating platform for tidal stream turbines near Texel, turbines in the Afsluitdijk and Westerschelde and a pilot project using fresh water from the IJsselmeer and sea water at the Wadden Sea to produce electricity.

Learning goals for marine energy technologies course are as follows:

  • to understand the available technologies for marine energy and asses the feasibility of the various forms such as wave energy and tidal energy,
  • principles of operation, the design philosophies, construction, installation and maintenance,
  • how various feed-in systems work in the Netherlands, but also UK, France and Canada,
  • how to asses resource potential,
  • how to develop one’s own business case model.

“Marine energy is at a tipping point. This course gives essential insights on this emerging sector and teaches you how to assess the feasibility of projects,” said Peter Scheijgrond, trainer at the course from MET-support.

The course is targeting engineers, policy makers, regulators and financial experts concerning renewable energy projects, energy companies, marine and energy consultants in the North Sea area.
