Webinar #6 in Annex IV Environmental Webinar Series
Sponsored by Ocean Energy Systems (OES)
July 21, 2015 @ 15:00 - 16:30 UTC
Marine renewable energy test centers around the world have been successful in testing new technologies to ensure devices perform up to standards and are able to survive in the marine environment. Test centers have also provided researchers with the opportunity to begin observing how these technologies interact with the marine environment. Programs have been developed focusing on environmental monitoring technologies and methodologies, as well as interactions between technologies and specific marine animals. This webinar will discuss current environmental research efforts focused around marine renewable energy test centers and what is being planned for future test centers.
