EWTEC 2021

We are pleased to confirm that the EWTEC2021 conference will definitely be taking place on 5-9 September 2021!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, whilst we are hopeful we will be welcoming as many delegates as possible to the University of Plymouth in September, we have made the decision to run the conference in a hybrid format. As a result, you now have the option to attend the conference either in person or online. Should you wish to change your in person registration to an online option, you will receive a 20% refund on your registration fee. We will constantly be monitoring government guidelines, and will only run the event face to face if it is safe to do so.

The University of Plymouth are delighted to be hosting the 14th European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) on 5-9 September 2021, and welcoming the wave and tidal community to the city of Plymouth and the University. 

EWTEC provides a forum where those at the forefront of technology development in the sector meet, interact, present their latest knowledge and debate new ideas and issues pertinent to wave and tidal energy conversion.

The University is located on the beautiful coastline of South Devon, and at the heart of the very centre of the city. We’re one of the largest universities in the region, and our world-leading researchers and state-of-the-art test facilities attracts some of the top marine-related academic and commercial research projects from around the world. 

Plymouth and its stunning historical waterfront location, rich maritime history, natural harbour and diversity in fish and marine life in Plymouth Sound, has led to it being named as the UK’s first National Marine Park. We’ve also been named as one of the best holiday destinations for 2020* and the friendliest city in the UK†.

With excellent transport links, breath-taking views of the coast and countryside, range of restaurants, quirky independent and top brand shops, Plymouth has something for everyone. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant city for EWTEC 2021. 

* Plymouth: The City of Discovery Plymouth named as the 3rd best holiday destination for 2020 by CN Traveller. 

Plymouth named as the friendliest city in the UK by research conducted by Moonpig.
