By joining forces, the organisers will offer an unparalleled opportunity for the sector to showcase its successes, network and do business.

Taking place on 18-20 October, the event combines Ocean Energy Europe’s annual conference and exhibition, and the International Conference on Ocean Energy, which is supported by the International Energy Agency’s Technological Collaboration Program on Ocean Energy Systems (IEA/OES).

The Basque Country is one of the world’s leading centres of ocean energy. Building on an impressive industrial history, it is now home to a wealth of innovative wave energy activity, including the BiMEP test centre, the Mutriku power plant and over 50 companies, universities and technology centres working in key regional and European initiatives.

Ocean Energy Europe is the largest network of ocean energy professionals in the world. Its annual event brings together hundreds of people from across the sector, including politicians, senior decision-makers and key industrial players.
