The annual Partnership for Research in Marine Renewable Energy (PRIMaRE) conference provides a forum for exchanging the latest research and development, and fostering collaborations on marine renewable energy. 

The conference covers a wide range of topics, including: technology, policy, environment, hydrodynamics, resource characterisation, materials, operations and management. It is an opportunity for the PRIMaRE network to showcase the research conducted among the different partner institutions, their industrial collaborators and the wider academic sector.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions this year's conference will be held online, run by Bangor University. The organisers hold to build on last year's hugely successful online conference when over 210 delegates from all over the world attended the event. 

The conference includes universities, industry and research centres active in all aspects of marine renewable energy and is expected to attract over 100 participants ranging from industrial developers, university researchers, marine environmentalists and policy makers.

Today's events


PRIMaRE is a consortium of marine renewable energy experts across higher education, research and industry which have joined together to establish a ‘network of excellence’ for the south of the UK.

The Universities of Plymouth, Exeter, Southampton, Bristol, Cardiff and Bath, along with the Marine Biological Association of the UK and Plymouth Marine Laboratory, have agreed to work together on research projects across the spectrum of marine renewables. Completing the line-up of PRIMaRE is the South West Marine Energy Park (SW MEP) and the Wave Hub facility off the north coast of Cornwall, who will act as conduits between the research community and industry.
