Ocean Energy Experts Arrive in Rhode Island
Calling all marine, renewable energy, ocean science and technology, policy advocates and skeptics: come meet the experts, learn about their technological developments, understand the environmental impacts of these devices at the 4th Annual Marine Renewable Energy Technical Conference on October 30-31, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Conference Center in Warwick, Rhode Island.
Presentations by 48 engineering, scientific, industry, government experts in ocean energy equipment, environmental impacts and policy are featured. This conference promises to exceed previous conferences in the depth of the content, its international reach and the industry participation.
Our technical team has accepted the best topics to be presented and the best of the best will be published in the peer reviewed, prestigious Marine Technology Society Journal. A special issue will be published in August 2013 based on the best of the 4th Annual MRE Technical Conference plus several from the community at large. This is a great development for upping the technical impact and documenting the important results of research that will be presented, in some cases for the first time at this conference. Meeting the people who are working daily to answer the tough technical questions about how best to design an underwater power turbine; model the efficiency of submerged wave energy converters, monitoring plankton populations near OTEC water intakes, assessing the wave resource in Chacao Channel, Chile are just a sampling of what will be presented. Add to that many posters that will be presented during one-on-one conversations at the hosted breaks and reception. Networking, building relationships and meeting new colleagues is crucial to moving this new industry forward. We all need energy, we all want it to be clean, affordable and if we can get it out of our vast oceans (and rivers), then where better to take it all in?
All the coffee breaks are generously sponsored by Teledyne RDI and the Marine and Oceanographic Technology Network.
Among our valued speakers are:
We owe all of this to our great sponsors who help us everyday push the frontiers of marine renewable energy toward a realistic future: MA Clean Energy Center, UMass Dartmouth, New England MREC, and others.
