About this event

Could ocean energy have a key role in future electricity production?

Ocean energy is safe, inexhaustible and mostly predictable, offering security of supply, innovation and economic development….. and the UK is at the forefront of the marine renewable energy industry.

Our presenter, Professor George Aggidis will focus on how wave energy converters capture the energy contained in ocean waves to generate electricity. He will also explain the development of the technology in the 1970s, up to today and the future potential of this technology.
