MECC Badge

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.

NREL and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office have just launched the Marine Energy Collegiate Competition: Powering the Blue Economy to inspire student teams to innovate next-generation marine energy solutions. The competition provides structure and support for college and university programs to explore concepts related to desalination, aquaculture, and ocean observation market applications. Culminating at the International Conference on Ocean Energy, which will be held in Washington D.C. in May 2020, the Marine Energy Collegiate Competition will showcase team pitches and design concepts while presenting networking and career development opportunities. Learn more about the competition on the upcoming informational webinar.

The European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) series are international, technical and scientific conferences, focussed on ocean renewable energy and widely respected for their commitment to maintain high standards in the quality of academic and industrial contributions to their proceedings.

EWTEC provides a forum where those at the forefront of technology development in the sector meet, interact, present their latest knowledge and debate new ideas and issues pertinent to wave and tidal energy conversion. It thus provides attendees with a perfect forum for knowledge transfer and debate at the cutting edge of marine renewable energy technology.

The conferences are the pre-eminent global pedagogic and scholarly events dealing with wave and tidal energy conversion and provide global focus for all activities in wave and marine current energy conversion technologies, research, development and demonstration.
