In the words of the organisers…
José Ignacio Hormaeche
Managing Director of the Basque Energy Cluster:
The next few years will be key for the future success of ocean energy. International collaboration is more relevant than ever, and we want the joint event between ICOE and OEE to be a catalyser for the sector. It is time to meet again… and what a better place than the beautiful city of Donostia / San Sebastian.
CEO of Ocean Energy Europe:
We are excited to co-organise this one-of-a-kind event together with the Basque Energy Cluster, merging two already well-regarded events. With revenue support in the UK and France looking at new pilot farms, it will be a perfect moment for the whole sector to come together and drive ocean energy forward.
Yann-Hervé De Roeck
Chairman of the IEA/OES:
Our group of international experts on ocean energy (23 member countries plus the European Commission) collaborates to accelerate the viability, uptake and acceptance of ocean energy systems in an environmentally acceptable manner. By associating our biannual international conference ICOE with OEE event, the resulting synergy is fully in line with our objectives.
