Le programme de la conférence de cette année examine comment les technologies innovantes de l’énergie océanique peuvent conduire la transition énergétique verte vers un avenir neutre en carbone.
Les impacts de la crise climatique et de la pandémie de coronavirus soulignent l’importance d’investir dans des industries robustes et résistantes aux chocs. La reprise économique mondiale a besoin de nouveaux secteurs durables pour stimuler l’activité industrielle et créer des emplois.
C’est le moment opportun pour montrer que les technologies d’énergie océanique indigènes, infinies et décentralisées sont bien adaptées à cette réalité économique et environnementale. Le programme OEE2020 démontrera également que la chaîne d’approvisionnement étendue et le potentiel d’exportation massif de l’énergie océanique offrent de réels avantages économiques parallèlement à ses références en matière d’énergie verte.
Wave energy devices continue to advance, finding innovative ways to exploit one of the world’s richest resources. In this session, we will bring delegates up to speed with a range of rapid-fire presentations, featuring the latest news from the top wave technology developers.

Scotland is now
Scotland is a world leader in the development and deployment of wave and tidal energy technologies. It plays host to the world’s leading wave and tidal test centre, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney; the world’s first commercial scale and largest tidal stream array; the world’s first community tidal stream array and the world’s most powerful tidal stream turbine. The Wave Energy Scotland (WES) technology programme, has invested more than £41.6 million in more than 95 projects to date. These projects are developing wave devices, sub-systems and components, as well as leading the way in advanced control systems.
Scotland continues to champion the wave and tidal energy sector, supporting the research, development, and demonstration that will maintain Scotland’s competitive advantage and potentially deliver significant domestic and export-led economic benefit.
| Side Event
The H2020 DTOceanPlus project aims to develop and test a software suite of advanced design tools for tidal and wave systems, to be released mid-2021 following validation by industrial partners in the consortium. The workshop will give a general overview of the suite of tools and their capabilities, plus explain how to run them with relevant user cases.
Since inception, the OPIN project has built a network of over 380 companies from across Ocean energy and related sectors to collaborate and address industry challenges. OPIN partners will update participants on their activities to date and will highlight the supports that OPIN members can access to both improve their own technology development as well as address joint challenges for the sector.
The Ocean DEMO project partners will update on their progress to address significant challenges for the industry such as de-risking OE generating technologies in multi-device farm configuration; developing an active supply chain that invests in dedicated OE sub-systems and components and creating a supportive policy environment for OE by providing governments with confidence in OE and highlighting OE’s economic benefits.
