Blue energy: South West WA’s future as a marine renewables hub

Blue energy: South West WA’s future as a marine renewables hub

October 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
UWA Oceans Institute, The University of Western Australia, Fairway, Crawley WA 6009, Australia

A free public lecture by Professor Christophe Gaudin, Head of Oceans Graduate School and Director Wave Energy Research Centre.

Energy security is a critical issue in the 21st century and marine renewable energy resources are an important component of the blue economy agenda in Australia and internationally. Compared to other forms of renewable energy, wave energy is more consistent and more concentrated, but this industry is still in its infancy.

In this public lecture Professor Gaudin will discuss why marine renewable energy is an important component of the blue economy agenda and why Western Australia is one of the most promising wave and tidal energy locations in the world.
