The essential roadmap to industry commercialisation

  • Tidal energy commercialisation: Understand how new technology and supply chain developments can help reduce the levelised cost of energy and make your project commercially viable
  • Electricity Market Reforms: What impacts will the transfer from Renewables Obligations Certificate to Contract for Difference prior to 2017 have upon the industry and commercial scale projects?
  • Deployment and retrieval system innovation: Hear exclusive case studies on the latest innovations in vessel access and turbine retrieval systems designed to minimise access time and increase availability, reducing the overall cost of energy
  • Turbine technology: Get the latest turbine technology updates from large multi-MW devices to smaller turbines designed for mooring platforms, and realise the potential for overall cost reduction
  • Bridge the funding gap: Deliver a bankable project submission by understanding the key criteria upon which investors rate a potential project investment
  • Mitigate grid connectivity challenges and delays: Get unique insight from grid operators into the challenges faced with regards to transmissions networks and understand how to reduce the project impact of grid upgrade delays

We are a company looking to enter the tidal energy sector and as such this conference was very beneficial to see how the sector is developing. It enabled me to gain direct access to the 'movers and shakers' at the top of the most important companies. Technical Sales Manager, Gamesa Energy Transmission
