EnergyOcean International 2011
EnergyOcean International 2011 will be held June 14 to 16 in Portland, Maine. Now in its eighth year, the conference is expected to bring together more than 450 offshore renewable energy industry professionals from around the world.

EnergyOcean is supported by ocean energy organizations, including the Ocean Energy Council, and features extensive government participation, organizers said.

EnergyOcean International’s three-day format consists of a technical conference program developed and led by industry and an exhibition with more than 60 companies. Organizers said the event will address technological advances, investment opportunities, regulatory issues and planned and implemented projects throughout the world.

The show is designed for energy producers, utility companies, government officials, policy makers, investment firms, technology innovators, project developers, component and systems manufacturers, scientists, researchers, and academic and educational organizations.


Technical Program and Advisory Committee
EnergyOcean International’s Advisory Committee, made up of industry representatives, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, nongovernmental organizations and academia, has responsibility for developing the content of the conference and ensuring that it is of maximum benefit to all delegates.

The conference’s technical program features an extensive list of speakers and panelists, and organizers said the program promises to deliver a substantial return on investment for attendees.

Topics to be covered at the conference include offshore wind projects; ocean thermal energy conversion and projects; wave and tidal technologies and projects; project case studies; construction and development; marine spatial planning; federal regulatory perspectives; testing and demonstration facilities; financing and risk reduction; and environmental findings.


Exhibition
After selling out the exhibition floor more than three months before the event, organizers expanded the available space so more than 60 companies could exhibit. The organizers said networking opportunities and informal meeting opportunities are large components of the event. For more information visit www.energyocean.com.
