Marine Energy Wales will travel across the Atlantic to share knowledge and experience of its work within the marine energy sector during Marine Renewables Canada 2017 Conference.
The event, taking place in November 2017, will bring together Marine Renewables Canada members, government, academia, industry, and delegates from around the world to discuss current marine renewable energy activities, and needs for the sector in Canada and globally.
Marine Energy Wales’ mission forms part of the memorandum of understanding signed by both organisations last year to share knowledge and support the development of marine energy across the world.
Amanda White, Operations Director at Marine Renewables Canada said: “Wales is recognized as a leading jurisdiction in marine renewable energy development and Marine Energy Wales attendance at our conference will allow us to share lessons learned, discuss potential collaborations, and strengthen the ties between Canada and Wales.”
The theme for this year’s Marine Renewables Canada conference will be to explore the path forward for marine renewable energy, examine the strategy for going forward, and how the growing focus and priority on renewables by society, investors, and governments will play a role, according to Marine Energy Wales.
The agenda features highlights on Canadian achievements to date as well as updates on the global industry, insights on strategies and policies which could accelerate sector development and future opportunities and challenges.
