Ocean Energy Systems (OES) has organized a webinar to discuss benefits of international data sharing for the development of marine renewable energy industry.
As the marine renewable energy (MRE) industry grows, there is a need to document progress and learn from past practices.
Bringing together data and information can help to move the industry forward through collaboration and cooperation, while protecting vital intellectual property and individual progress, according to OES.
On this note, OES has arranged a webinar to explore the status of MRE data collection and availability, the benefits of data and information sharing internationally, promising methods of dissemination and quality control, and to identify opportunities to contribute to future data organization and sharing.
The same webinar will be held twice, with the first scheduled for February 27, 2018, while the second will take place a day later.
OES, also known as the Technology Collaboration Program on Ocean Energy Systems, is an intergovernmental collaboration between countries operating under a framework established by the International Energy Agency, with the aim to advance research, development and demonstration of conversion technologies that harness energy from all forms of ocean renewable resources.
