About EWTEC:

The European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) series are international, technical and scientific conferences, focussed on ocean renewable energy and widely respected for their commitment to maintain high standards in the quality of academic and industrial contributions to their proceedings.

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. It thus provides attendees with a perfect forum for knowledge transfer and debate at the cutting edge of marine renewable energy technology.

Wave and Tidal Energy: realising our ambitions

More wave and tidal devices have been deployed in Scotland’s Highlands and Islands than in the rest of the world combined. However, the continued lack of a viable route to market puts all of this in jeopardy. Join us as we debate the challenges and opportunities, learn about cutting-edge developments and set the agenda for the year ahead.
