Ocean Energy in Islands and Remote Coastal Areas

17 December 2020, 15:00 CET

The International Energy Agency’s Technology Collaboration Programme on Ocean Energy Systems (IEA-OES) is pleased to invite you to its webinar entitled Ocean Energy in Islands and Remote Coastal Areas on Thursday, 17 December 2020 at 15:00 CET.

This webinar follows the release of the report “Ocean Energy in Islands and Remote Coastal Areas”, in July 2020. The report outlines the outcomes of three workshops organized by the IEA-OES in three different regions of the world -  South-East Asia (Singapore), Europe (France) and the Pacific (Hawaii) - exploring the opportunities and solutions to address the challenges identified in islands and remote locations.

  • Islands and remote coastal areas are often subjected to the misconception that they require scaled down continental solutions.
  • Nonetheless,  these areas face a different reality than their continental counterparts and, therefore, may require localised solutions.
  • Ocean energy technologies can be an appealing option for these energy markets.
  • This report discusses opportunities to enable the integration of ocean energy technologies into the energy systems in islands and remote coastal areas and create synergies between the economic and energy sectors.
