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.

Within an international context, and taking man-made structures (MMS) in its widest definition, SIME2021 will focus on the impact that the presence or removal of these structures may have on biological marine ecosystems. SIME2021 welcomes abstracts in the areas of biodiversity & MMS; restoration & MMS; natural vs artificial substrata; connectivity of structures; and the social and political implications of MMS. Abstracts are due 16th April 2021.Academics, stakeholders, industry and government representatives and interested parties are invited to come together for talks, e-posters, networking and discussion about man-made structures already within the marine ecosystem, and any new infrastructures that may be put in place over the coming decades.
The impact of climate change and the coronavirus pandemic has underlined the importance of investing in industries which drive the green energy transition and create jobs, and the marine energy industry is a shining example of both.Scottish Renewables’ Marine Conference will bring together key industry players to discuss the cutting-edge developments happening here in Scotland and assess the opportunities and challenges the sector will face in the vital years ahead.
Journalist and author Kate Russell will host the event and lead discussion with each of our speakers throughout the day. Presentations will be from wind industry leaders as well as experts in circular economy approaches drawn from a variety of sectors, nations and backgrounds. From disruptive tech start-ups to global manufacturers, thought leaders and policymakers–you will gain a unique mix of knowledge and experience.This day will feature technology showcases, livelinks to our facilities, panel discussions and expert Q&As on such topics as composite plastics, sourcing of minerals (such as rare earth, copper, cobalt), lifetime extension and designing out waste from the start.
The conference includes universities, industry and research centres active in all aspects of marine renewable energy and is expected to attract over 100 participants ranging from industrial developers, university researchers, marine environmentalists and policy makers. The aim of the event is to cover a wide range of topics in marine renewable energy, including: technology, policy, environment, hydrodynamics, resource characterisation, materials, operation and management, etc.The 8th PRIMaRE conference will provide a platform for both industrial and university speakers to present their up to date activities and on-going research programmes through posters. Online facilities for exhibitors and posters will be available to allow the community to interact, learn and network.
