Take part in marine energy certification workshop

Posted on

A free workshop on the certification of marine energy technologies is available in London later this month. 

Organised by the MET-Certified project, funded by the EU’s Interreg 2 Seas Programme, the aim is to increase the adoption of bankable marine energy projects through accelerating the development of internationally recognised standards and certification schemes.

The workshop, run by the European Marine Energy Centre on Thursday 22 June , is designed to actively involve all stakeholders in a range of matters: from banks and insurers to consenting authorities, technology developers, test facilities and certification bodies.

During the workshop, experts will explain the system which is being developed under the umbrella of the International Electro-Technical Commission (IEC).

Stakeholders taking part will be invited to share their expectations and needs from the system.

The ultimate goal is to ensure that by using world renowned standards and worldwide accepted certification, the risks of marine energy projects can be significantly reduced, making access to commercial funding possible.

The key benefits of attending this free workshop are:

  • Learning about the latest developments in standardisation and certification for marine energy projects.
  • Being invited to provide feedback and input on how certification can reduce the risks of marine energy projects through
  • Finding out about closer involvement in the MET-Certified project.

There will be four workshops in total. After the successful first workshop in the Netherlands early in May, workshops will be held in Paris and London in June and in Ostend in September.

The European Marine Energy Centre will be hosting the workshop in the London offices of Lloyd’s Register on Thursday 22 June.
