REN sponsors Seminar on marine renewables



REN is among the sponsors of the Annual Seminar WavEC - Offshore Renewables, which will take place on 26 October, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

The meeting, which has the institutional support of the Embassy of Finland and Finns Ministries of Agriculture and Forestry, Employment and Economy, will join sector experts from all over Europe.

The event aims to discuss the strategies of blue growth, and technologies that will establish cross-sectoral synergies in marine renewable energy, in order to find concrete proposals for collaboration between companies and Finnish and Portuguese authorities.

The day after the conference, Friday, October 27, and in partnership with the National Agency for Innovation and the European Enterprise Network, will held bilateral meetings (10-15 minutes) at the residence of the Ambassador of Finland in order to develop joint business in this area.

REN's association with this event stems from the importance that the WavEC gives to the role that the Portuguese pilot area may have on the development of this sector. In late August, ENONDAS / Ocean Plug, in collaboration with the WavEC, carried out a survey of national and international promoters of the sector in order to assess their technologic status as well as their knowledge of the Portuguese Pilot Zone.
