The symposium will be held over 2.5 days at the Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre of UWA, and will cover the following themes spanning wave, tidal and offshore wind energy:
- Device development and performance optimisation
- Extreme conditions and survivability
- Moorings and foundations
- Control, PTO systems and grid connectivity
- Resource assessments and prediction
- Environmental impacts
- Policy, economics and regulations
The AORES symposium aims to foster collaboration and future growth of the Australian ocean renewable energy sector (wave, tide and offshore wind). It brings together industry, academics, policy makers and other stakeholders to share information on the latest domestic developments and scientific advancements. To provide a global context, a number of international and industry leaders will deliver keynote presentations.
This second symposium follows on from the very successful inaugural event in Melbourne in 2016.
We invite abstracts from developers, researchers and other stakeholders within the field of ocean renewable energy. The symposium will be conducted in plenary, including both oral and poster presentations, as well as discussion sessions.
On Wednesday afternoon (21st Nov) we will hold an interactive roundtable workshop entitled Developers Forum (facilitated by Australian Marine Energy Taskforce AMET). In this two-part programme, you will learn about emerging marine energy technologies followed by an engaged roundtable discussion with the developers and entrepreneurs on ways to reduce costs and accelerate their path to market.
The registration fee (regular: $375, student: $325) will include daily catering, a sundowner and a symposium dinner.
