Marine Conference & Dinner 2023 About the Event

The clock is ticking for achieving net-zero and the Climate Change Committee is unequivocal - “a reliable, secure and decarbonised power system by 2035 is possible – but not at this pace of delivery.” With energy security and the need to move faster at the forefront of decision-makers minds’, Scotland’s world leading marine energy sector is stepping up to the challenge as the pace of innovation and development continues to accelerate.

There is also a growing sense of commitment to marine energy with project success in the CfD Allocation Round 4 and strong indicators from The Scottish Government about their support for the sector in the draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan.

But what is needed now is a clear deployment pathway setting out the key milestones we must hit in the coming years to ensure the sector is successful in its journey to full commercialisation.

Scottish Renewables’ Marine Conference will bring together key industry players to discuss the latest developments happening here in Scotland and where we go next as an industry in the vital years ahead.

You’ll learn:

  • Industry leaders’ views on the current state of the sector - and what we need to do next to meet our ambitions.
  • What Scotland’s marine energy industry’s deployment pathway should look like.
  • How we take wave and tidal technologies into the mainstream and maintain Scotland’s position as a global leader.

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:

  • Hear about the latest UK and Scottish Government policy
  • Discuss, debate and influence what decisions are taken to benefit the sector
  • Meet with others in the sector to network and share ideas.
