Empowering coastal communities with ocean renewable energy: industry insights and discussionRegister Now
Did you know that ocean energy could have provided over half of the electricity produced in the U.S. in 2019? Marine technologies that harness renewable ocean energy - derived from the ocean’s movement, or its physical and chemical state - have emerged as a promising avenue for a transition to clean energy - with global significance. We’re gathering our partners in the sector to celebrate and amplify this crucial work for a panel on Frontiers in Ocean Renewable Energy on Tuesday, December 7, 8am PT.
Carbon emissions offset by offshore wind, tidal, wave, and floating solar power systems are set to reach 500 million tons by 2050. Fully utilized, waves, tides, currents, and ocean temperature gradients can provide coastal communities with a continuous, reliable, and resilient source of energy - which, in recent years, has been of paramount necessity in the wake of extreme weather events coupled with climate change.
Want to hear how enhanced mesoscale insights and meteorological forecasts help harness the ocean’s renewable energy in an intensifying climate? Hear from a panel of ocean energy experts on:
• The importance of accurate measurement for site characterization and design criteria
• Optimizing for energy production by using real-time weather data
• Environmental monitoring to understand impacts on marine life and structure
