Scotland’s marine energy sector is leading the development of wave and tidal devices, supporting high-skilled jobs, innovative academic research and a world-leading test centre. The industry is developing a strong local supply chain, designing and manufacturing devices that have a high export potential and could bring enormous socio-economic benefits to Scotland and the UK.
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.
In the year of COP26, 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.
- The contribution marine energy technologies can make to solving the global clean energy challenge
- What Scotland’s marine energy industry could deliver for our people, communities and our climate
- Industry leaders’ views on the current state of the sector - and what we need to do next to meet our ambitions
- How we take wave and tidal technologies into the mainstream and maintain Scotland’s position as a global leader
The conference is fully virtual - delegates can participate in live Q&A sessions and engage in live polling.
Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest in the development and growth of Scotland’s wave and tidal sector, including local and national government, academia, professional advisors, developers, supply chain companies and public bodies.
The Marine Conference is a must-attend for those involved in the wave and tidal energy sectors in Scotland:
