You’ve Got To Be Gridding Me
This session will focus on discussing grid challenges, the legislative and policy framework as well as work underway to enhance/develop the grid. Emphasis will be placed on communicating to non-specialist audiences.
This session will cover de-risking new technology from an insurance perspective & innovative approaches to project finance. The central question to be addressed in this session will be “How can we make marine renewables more investible?”
Success Comes in Waves
This session will be an open and frank discussion about the challenges and market development opportunities for wave energy, exploring what’s needed to help wave energy catch up with tidal stream.
Challenges in Environmental Monitoring
This session will explore data gaps and technological solutions for improved environmental monitoring and data gathering.
This session will explore technological innovation and development in dynamic cabling to date, looking at the TRL level and work still needed to become fully commercially available.
This session will be a deep dive into foundation, mooring and anchor systems for marine energy devices, exploring what can be carried over from oil & gas and how these systems will be optimised in the future.
This session will aim to profile best practices in environmental net gain for offshore renewable energy projects and discuss current research gaps.
This session will explore mitigative solutions for some of the threats causing assets to degrade in the marine environment such as rust, biofouling and storm damage.
This session will explore frameworks for enhanced cooperation between a multitude of different competing and complementary users of the sea.
