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.
Professor Deborah Greaves OBE gave 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.
Attendees had the opportunity to submit questions for the Q&A session taking place at the end of the event.
Who was this event for?
This public talk was 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 was organised by the University of Plymouth and Supergen ORE Hub.
