New OES Report: Global Status and Critical Developments in Ocean EnergyA collection of invited articles of the OES Annual Reports, since 2008 and a reference on developments in ocean energy.
Every year since its inception in 2001 the Ocean Energy Systems Implementing Agreement (OES) Executive Committee (ExCo) has published an Annual Report, which details its activities over the previous year and includes on ocean energy activities supplied by each ExCo member country. The 2008 Annual Report started a tradition of including a series of invited articles, on a specific theme, by acknowledged industry
experts. These invited articles examine current issues in the development of ocean energy technologies and provide insights into changing circumstances within ocean energy, e.g., forecasting cost of energy for different technologies.
In May 2012 the ExCo decided that, with 5 years’ worth of invited articles, it would be valuable to collect these articles together into a single volume as a reference source, which documents the recent developments in ocean energy in OES countries. So this volume is intended as an authoritative reference on developments in ocean energy, as they occurred in a year-on-year progression.
