University of Maine, Orono, Maine, USA.
Are you a graduate student, early-stage researcher, or young professional in offshore renewable energy? You’re invited to the University of Maine this October for INORE’s annual North American Symposium! Join us for four days of research sharing, idea exchange, workshops, and site visits in a dynamic and informal environment. Meet and collaborate with like-minded individuals from around the world specializing in offshore renewable energy, including:
- Technology and engineering of offshore renewable energy devices
- Environmental monitoring and sustainability of marine renewables
- Marine resource assessment
- Policy and human dimensions of offshore renewable energy
Maine is home to two of the first grid-connected offshore renewable energy devices deployed in the United States. This symposium will draw on the region’s experience to address the challenges of transitioning offshore energy technologies from the lab to the ocean. Speakers include key players in offshore renewable energy in the northeastern United States, such as Maine Sea Grant, Maine Aqua Ventus, Ocean Renewable Power Company, and more!
