International marine energy conference to come to Britain for first time in 2017

The trade association representing the wind, wave and tidal energy industries, RenewableUK, has announced that, for the first time ever, one of the most prestigious global conferences on renewable energy will be held in the UK.

The 6th International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) will take place from 23rd to 25th February 2017 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

It will be organised and hosted by RenewableUK, in place of the trade association’s annual wave and tidal energy conference.

The event will focus on the commercial and industrial development of marine energy, in which the UK leads the world.

The conference programme will be drawn up by an international committee of wave and tidal energy industry leaders, and organisations working in the sector including RenewableUK.

RenewableUK’s Director of Events, Garth Halliday, said “This is a real coup for us - we’re honoured to be hosting this highly prestigious event. It shows how important RenewableUK has become at an international level, as a key player in specialist conferences of this kind.

“As the UK is the world leader in marine energy, with more wave and tidal capacity installed than the rest of the world put together, this country is a fitting choice for one of the highlights of the global renewable energy calendar.

"We’ll be working hard between now and February 2017 to ensure that this event will provide an unparalleled opportunity to network and to learn more about the latest technological developments in the dynamic world of wave and tidal energy.
