With two days of talk shows, round tables and networking - and a total of 138 sessions, 181 content contributors and 1,342 one-on-one matches - the 13th Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference has successfully wrapped up its first virtual edition. Meanwhile, the ENCORE project is proud to have widely contributed to the programme with our Regional Impact Campaign and looks back at a very fruitful collaboration.
Could not make this year's OEEC? You'll be glad to know that you can watch on demand most of the content via the Offshore Energy website.
But to make it easier still, let us focus on our most valued ENCORE RIC selection:
We hope you spotted the UGent Showcase about the Coastal & Ocean Basin during the two-day conference! If not, you can watch it again here:
Showcase UGent Coastal & Ocean Basin
Talkshow: Focus on Offshore Wind
With Benjamin Lehner, Business & Innovation Advisor DMEC on 'The Future of Renewable Energy Parks'
As we move to a more clean-energy-oriented world, cross-market collaboration and system integration get more attention. With using multiple technologies to tap into the offshore renewable energy resources, spatial planning is one of the key points to address.
Round Table Session: Supply Chain opportunities for marine energy projects
With Oceans of Energy, Teamwork Technology, Water2Energy and Inyanga Marine Projects (Thypso/HydroWing), EEL-Energy. Moderated by Peter Scheijgrond, Project manager INTERREG 2SEAS ENCORE for Dutch Marine Energy Centre
This round table session, hosted within the match-making sector of the conference, was the perfect place for our ENCORE technology developers to pitch their technology to an interested audience from the supply chain. The direct line of communication between these two parties led to some interesting connections made and follow-up conversations to be had, perfectly matching needs, wants and demands.
Links to the four pitch presentations will follow soon.
Talkshow: Marine Energy, the Next Big Thing!
With Andries van Unen, CEO Tocardo, Richard Parkinson, CEO Inyanga Marine Projects, Patrik Möller, CEO CorPower Ocean and Kim Nielsen, Wave Energy Consultant, Ramboll
When it comes to establishing the energy transition, all forms of renewable energy are needed. As an untapped and reliable source of energy, marine energy can play an important role in complementing the future energy mix. What is the potential of marine energy and what collaborations do we see with the offshore and maritime sectors?
