International Conference on Ocean Energy 2020 will be hosted by Washington, D.C.

The IEA Ocean Energy Systems (OES) approved the next International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) in 2020 to be held in Washington, DC., organized by the National Hydropower Association (NHA). The new host for ICOE 2020 has been announced during ICOE 2018 at Cherbourg, France.

NHA is a nonprofit national association dedicated to promoting the growth of clean, affordable US waterpower in all of its forms, ranging from conventional hydropower, to pumped storage to marine energy. It seeks to secure waterpower’s place as a climate-friendly, renewable and reliable energy source that serves national environmental, energy, and economic policy objectives.

Tim Ramsey from the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Water Power Technologies Office and Delegate to the OES says “We appreciate IEA-OES’s consideration and are excited for the U.S. to host ICOE for the first time. This event presents a unique and important opportunity to bring global leaders together to share experiences and knowhow, with the collective goal of advancing the industry forward. I look forwarded to seeing you all in 2020.”

Hosting ICOE 2020 in Washington, DC, NHA aims to strengthen the focus on bringing marine energy industries together to look for opportunities to accelerate commercialization and reaffirm ICOE as the international marine renewables industrial development forum. ICOE 2020 will be held in co-location with the NHA Annual Meeting at Waterpower Week in Washington.
