Seminar 2009

Wave Energy in Portugal in the International Context

After the well succeeded event of 2008 “Marine Renewable Energy in Portugal Technology State of the Art and Business Opportunities”, the Wave Energy Centre (WavEC) announces this years’ thematic seminar: “Wave Energy in Portugal in the International Context” that took place on the 15th of June 2009 at the Electricity Museum in Lisbon, Portugal.

 

The event was mainly focused to companies, R&D institutes and public administration with interest to acknowledge the latest developments of wave energy technology and related actions to the implementation of this renewable energy source in our country, as well as to understand the situation of wave energy in the international context. Hence we offer a detailed and actual perspective about the potentialities and possible business opportunities in the national and international context.
