Oregon Wave Energy Trust to Host Ocean Renewable Energy Conference VI


WHAT:
The sixth annual Ocean Renewable Energy Conference hosted by Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET) will focus on where we are – and what we need to do – to responsibly accelerate the development of the wave energy industry and realize its full economic and environmental potential in Oregon, nationally and internationally.

WHY:
The world has changed significantly. Natural disasters, rising costs and public sentiment have raised awareness of the urgent need to develop new sources of clean, renewable energy. With the spotlight on renewable and wave energy worldwide, the sixth annual Ocean Renewable Energy Conference promises to be its most interesting, informative and important conference to date.

WHO:
This year's conference will bring together renewable and ocean energy leaders and stakeholders representing the full spectrum of wave energy project development to continue the conversation about how we responsibly develop the emerging wave energy industry. Attendees include: project developers, coastal community leaders, utilities, academia, state and federal regulators, researchers and others.

About Oregon Wave Energy Trust
Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET) – with members from fishing and environmental groups, industry and government – is a nonprofit public-private partnership funded by the Oregon Innovation Council in 2007. Its mission is to serve as a connector for all stakeholders involved in wave energy project development – from research and development to early stage community engagement and final deployment and energy generation – positioning Oregon as the North America leader in this nascent industry and delivering its full economic and environmental potential for the state. OWET's goal is to have ocean wave energy producing 500 megawatts of power by 2025.
