Ocean Energy in Islands and Remote Coastal Areas

IEA-OES Webinar

Date: December 17, 2020 at 14:00 GMT

This webinar follows the release of the report "Ocean Energy 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.
Webinar Programme:
  • Henry Jeffrey (OES Chairman), Opening Remarks
  • Maria Vanegas (Edinburgh University), Ocean energy in Islands: overview of opportunities and challenges
  • John Meagher (Nova Innovation), Tidal power's blue energy islands
  • Roland Roesch (Deputy Director of IRENA Innovation and Technology Centre), IRENA Ocean Energy Outlook - opportunities for a blue economy
  • Q&A
