Offshore Renewable Energy Technology
Our current energy system is heavily reliant on fossil fuels and is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change. Renewable energy provides alternative sources for the future energy system that will reduce our current greenhouse gas emissions and aid in the essential transition away from fossil fuel use. 
Offshore renewable energy (ORE) is a key source to achieve this transition that focuses on capturing energy from waves, tidal currents and offshore wind, with technology that will convert energy from these natural elements into usable power for our communities. For ORE technology to be successful, there needs to be an appreciation of its interaction with the whole energy system, including a thorough understanding of how the device will affect and be affected by the environment it is in, and affect other users of the space, the grid, and end users of the generated power.
