Leading figures from the offshore renewable energy sector will be coming to the University of Plymouth later this year after it successfully bid to host the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC 2021).
The biennial event was first held in 1993 and provides a forum where those at the forefront of technology development in the sector meet, interact, present their latest research and debate new ideas and issues pertinent to wave and tidal energy conversion.
Running from September 5-9, the conference will – subject to COVID guidelines at the time – be held at the University of Plymouth and other venues in and around the city such as Plymouth Guildhall and The Box.
It is set to incorporate a full programme of lectures, workshops, technical visits and poster sessions as well as social activities such as a gala dinner.
Registration for the event is now open, with an early bird package available for those wanting to attend, although this is subject to change depending on any changes to the Government’s COVID-19 guidelines (* see note below).
