Abstract

There is currently no detailed technology research road map for marine renewable energy in existence, although there are several bodies currently doing work in this area, including UKERC, CA-OE and the IEA Ocean Energy Group. In order to avoid duplication of effort and ensure a more coherent and co-ordinated approach, the principle objective of this workshop was to establish a strategy for a common international road-map for marine renewable energy, that reflects the needs of the community as a whole, but also includes regional/national requirements. The aim of the workshop was to bring together key members of the marine renewable energy community, including academics, industry, policy-makers and funders, to discuss the current status of road-maps in this sector and identify the opportunities for bringing the existing work together into a single road-map to the benefit of the overall sector.
