Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy
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.

The important topics in the Annual event are:
Digitalisation and asset management for wind energy Floating wind; Recent developments, knowledge gaps and urgent research priorities Wind energy system integration, how are we going to use the energy of the large-scale offshore wind power in our energy system. Towards multi-scale wind flow modelling and measurements Social considerations while implementing onshore wind Sustainability and circular economy; material availability and usage The annual event will have a strong focus on the development of the Lighthouse Initiatives. The Lighthouse initiatives that are pursued by EERA JP Wind are:
Floating offshore wind technology to make floating offshore wind cost competitive and Integration of large-scale offshore wind energy to enable the future reliable operation and zero emission of the power system.The call for abstracts is open until 8 August 2021.
Each year, Seanergy brings together more than 3,000 leaders and experts from the Marine Renewable Energy and Offshore Wind sectors. During 2 days, exhibition area is the place where attendees explore innovations and technologies making the energy transition happen, where they do business and reach out professionals showcasing projects and vision into future solutions.This long awaited event for the sector will be opening two additional days, on 27 and 28 of September, for international BtoB meetings in particular.
The OPIN Annual Symposium will provide an update on OPIN’s goals and the different supports available, a brainstorming session on potential working groups to be funded by OPIN, and a networking opportunity with OPIN members.This free event will be hybrid or fully online, and will coincide with Seanergy 2021, to be held in Nantes between September 21st and 24th. No registration fee required for attending the OPIN Annual Symposium online.
The workshop will provide an overview of PRIMRE, its Aggregate Search, and ways to contribute, as well as live demonstrations of the newest Knowledge Hubs, the Marine Energy Atlas and MRE Software.

This workshop will examine the scientific evidence from key stressor-receptor interactions to discuss risk retirement and move towards application in a regulatory context. Pacific Northwest National Lab personnel are creating a series of "guidance documents" that translate research and understanding into regulatory needs for permitting marine renewable energy projects. The workshop will include presentations, discussions, and breakout groups to cover the scientific evidence bases and ability to retire risk for underwater noise, electromagnetic fields, habitat changes, and changes in oceanographic systems, as well as an overview of the guidance documents and their application in permitting processes.Join the workshop here: https://pnnl.zoomgov.com/j/1619260669?pwdTemplate:=b1cxUTN2VnlrZ25KclN4TE9xbG80Zz09.
This symposium will scope out the challenges that would most benefit from engineering solutions, as part of interdisciplinary collaborations, and explore this within the context of the themes: Marine, Freshwater and Terrestrial.Each theme will be explored from a research, policy and industry perspective, facilitating dialogue from a wide range of disciplines, including engineering, environmental science and management, social sciences, and economics and governance.
