Havkraft’s CEO joins IEA board of directors

Geir Arne Solheim, Havkraft’s CEO, has joined the International Energy Agency (IEA) Marine Renewable board of directors.

Solheim was selected by The Norwegian Wind Energy Association (NORWEA), a trade organization that works to promote Norwegian renewable energy production, including wave and tidal energy.

“This is a unique opportunity to be in the forefront of the global industry, to gain experience and to contribute with our knowledge into a great organization,” said Solheim.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous organisation which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 29 member countries and beyond.

Havkraft, a Norwegian based wave energy developer, has recently concluded the first testing phase of their wave energy converter (H-WEC) that was deployed off the coast of Norway in December.
The company expects to build a full scale demonstration plant in 2015.
