The North Sea Decarbonisation Conference: Ocean Energy Session

Website visit Address Virtual event Start May 11, 2021 - 12:45 pm End May 11, 2021 -2:15 pm

The EIC along with international supporting partners are working together on 11 and 12 May to host a two half-day virtual LIVE E-vent, The North Sea Decarbonisation Conference. The North Sea Basin is in pole position to play a leading role in the transition to a low carbon energy future and presents an opportunity to further connect the UK and neighbouring European markets.

As the role of oil and gas remains key, there is still an increasing pressure to reduce emissions and shift towards clean energy. The development of the low-carbon economy accelerates with an opportunity to create value through integrated energy systems and deliver Net Zero deadlines, with a significant £250bn prize on offer.

 

ORE Catapult Presence:

Oceon Energy – Tuesday 11th May – 12:45 – 2:15pm

Simon Cheeseman – Wave and Tidal Business Lead

 

Oceans are very much an untapped source of energy and yet have the potential to be an infinite power source. It has been reported by Ocean Energy Systems (OES) that global wave and tidal stream energy production has risen tenfold over the last decade. With the European Union now aiming to deploy 1GW of marine energy by 2030, we ask if wave and tidal energy can be the next generation of renewable energy technologies for Europe’s decarbonisation targets. In this session we will look at current projects and the various technologies being used to harness the power from our oceans.
