The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has won its bid to host the 4th International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) 2012.
Set to attract 750 international experts and world-leading companies in ocean energy, this three-day conference, 17-19 October 2012, will focus on marine renewable energy and will include presentations from global industry and academic experts in this new marine industry.
The conference will also feature a trade exhibition, which will include demonstrations from industrial exhibitors on the latest technologies in harnessing renewable energy from the sea. The event will be organised by professional conference organiser, Conference Partners.
“Ocean energy will play a significant role in electricity generation and job creation, and the continued growth of this industry will provide positive economic benefits for Ireland and the rest of the planet,” said Head of the Ocean Energy Development Unit at Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland and Chair of ICOE 2012, Eoin Sweeney.
In keeping with the marine theme of ICOE 2012, there will be a number of vessels berthed on the River Liffey, which is adjacent to The CCD, including vessels from the Naval Service and the Marine Institute as well as The Commissioners of Irish Lights’ multi-functional ship, the Granuaile. The vessels will be opened at scheduled times to allow delegates to view the ships’ features and talk with the crews.
