The Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy

MRE BasicsDatabasesMRE Essentials

The movement of water in the world’s oceans creates a vast store of kinetic energy. Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) can be harnessed to generate electricity to power homes, transport and industries. MRE encompasses both wave power — power from the movement of surface waves, tidal power — power from the kinetic energy of large bodies of moving water, and ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) — power from the heat differential of different thermal layers within a body of water.

PRIMRE provides broad access to information on engineering and technologies, resource characterization, device performance, and environmental effects of Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) projects. PRIMRE facilitates the commercial development of the MRE industry by increasing the accessibility and discoverability of this information, integrating the databases and information portals found on this site, and developing standards and guidelines. Providing consistent, easy access to information can help reduce duplication of effort and to enable the MRE community to build upon the successes of others to innovate and advance the adoption of MRE technologies.

San Jose, Costa Rica
The newly formed PAMEC. Energy Association is hosting its first Marine Renewable Energy Conference in San Jose, Costa Rica from January 26-28, 2020. The conference will cover a wide range of topics from technical to socioeconomic and envrionmental issues associated with the development of renewable energy on and from the ocean. Pan-American Marine Energy Conferences are designed to complement similar research collaboration conferences in Europe (European Wave and Tidal Energy Conferences or EWTEC) and in Asia (Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference or AWTEC). The PAMEC.Energy Association was established to be an ongoing organization to provide continuity between Conferences, and to support research and development in a range of marine renewable energy activities including offshore wind, wave, tidal, and thermal currents. Researchers with an interest in these matters are encouraged to submit an extended abstract by June 15, 2019.

The 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting convenes every two years and provides a venue for international scientists, students, government representatives and industry practitioners to exchange information via oral presentations and poster sessions. Topics covered include all aspects of oceanography, especially multidisciplinary topics, as well as presentations that reflect new and emerging research on the global ocean and society, including science education, outreach and public policy. The OSM originated in 1982 as a joint effort between the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO). In 2004 The Oceanography Society (TOS) joined as a regular co-sponsor.
