Our current energy system relies heavily on fossil fuels, which are 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 will aid in the essential move away from fossil fuels.Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) captures energy from waves, tidal currents and offshore wind, with technology that converts energy from these natural elements into usable power for our communities.
Join Professor Deborah Greaves OBE for an evening talk exploring engineering challenges and opportunities in ORE, and why ORE is a key renewable energy source that will help to mitigate the effects of climate change.
You will have the opportunity to submit questions for the Q&A session taking place at the end of the event.
Who is this event for?
This public talk is suitable for a non-technical audience who have an interest in engineering and offshore wind, wave and tidal energy, with some basic knowledge of offshore renewable energy.
This event has been organised by the University of Plymouth and Supergen ORE Hub. It is open to all and free to attend. It will be hosted online and you will receive a joining link to the email you provide at registration before the event begins.
