Marine Renewable Energy Conference

The purpose of this conference is to bring together representatives of industry, government and research to share updates on the progress, opportunities and challenges of commercializing ocean energy in the US. Ocean energy is seen as a large, untapped frontier with initial successes demonstrated in Europe in the form of large offshore wind farms, with more modest testing and demonstrations of more nascent wave and tidal technologies. With recent investments by MACEC and others in the Wind Technology Test Center; the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal and the newly installed Bourne Tidal Test Site, MA is looking more and more attractive as a place for ocean energy device developers to test equipment and manufacture it here for the US and export markets.
