A convenient truth: Using ‘Al-Gore-ithms’ to model ocean energy’s future

The future is unknown, but ocean energy’s development trajectory doesn’t have to be. In fact, the more we know about the sector’s potential deployments and cost reductions, the more readily we can integrate wave & tidal into our future energy mix.
This session brings together experts who are developing and modelling the latest scenarios for ocean energy’s scale-up.

TUESDAY, 18 October 14:00 – 15:30 Plenary room
