OES Annual Report 2014. As of end of 2014, 23 countries had signed the Implementing Agreement, with invitations extended to several others.

OES Annual Report 2014

This membership, from Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and Oceania, provides a broad international base of experience and knowledge. National governments appoint a Contracting Party to represent the country on the Executive Committee and there is a diversified representation of interests: governmental departments, utilities, universities and research organizations, energy agencies and industry associations. By information sharing and collaborative activities, participants gain an international perspective on ocean energy issues, opportunities and present challenges. The OES held two ExCo Meetings in 2014: The 26th and 27th meetings were convened in Paris, France (14 – 15 May 2014), and Halifax, Canada (10 – 11 November 2014). OES began operating in 2001 and has released an annual report every year since then. Ocean Energy Europe - Home. Ocean Energy Europe - Home.

Renewable energy. Overview Renewable energy can be produced from a wide variety of sources including wind, solar, hydro, tidal, geothermal, and biomass.

By using more renewables to meet its energy needs, the EU lowers its dependence on imported fossil fuels and makes its energy production more sustainable. The renewable energy industry also drives technological innovation and employment across Europe. 2020 renewable energy targets The EU's Renewable energy directive sets a binding target of 20% final energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020. All EU countries have adopted national renewable energy action plans showing what actions they intend to take to meet their renewables targets.

A new target for 2030 Renewables will continue to play a key role in helping the EU meet its energy needs beyond 2020. Support schemes for renewables. Wave & Tidal Energy. About Wave & Tidal Energy Wave and tidal energy will help decarbonise our energy supply; increase energy security and reduce our dependence on imported fossil fuels.

Wave & Tidal Energy

The UK is currently the undisputed global leader in marine energy, with around 10MW of wave and tidal stream devices being tested in UK waters, more than the rest of the world combined. The state of the art test facilities at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney and Wavehub in Cornwall provide developers with access to real sea conditions with planning consents and grid connections already in place. The ground-breaking Seagen tidal stream generator has been operating in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland since 2008 and had generated over 9GWh as of March 2014. The world’s first tidal stream farm (also known as an “array”) is currently under construction in the UK, Meygen’s Inner Sound project in the Pentland Firth, Scotland.

International Journal of Marine Energy will aim to publish original, high quality papers covering fundamental and applied research as well as case studies relevant to renewable energy emanating from the marine or ocean environment with particular focus on wave and tidal energy.

International Journal of Marine Energy

The Journal focuses on wave and tidal topics including: fundamental understanding; fluid mechanics; design; modelling and optimisation of devices and arrays/ farms; environmental assessment; design codes; regulations; policy; economics; monitoring; planning evaluation; legislation and legal aspects related to sustainable exploitation of the ocean and tidal resources.

Ambiental y Cual. A mediados del pasado mes de abril se hacía público el que se denomina “An Ecomodernist Manifiesto” que está despertando cierto interés en el mundo ambientalista norteamericano pero que, sin duda, está llamado a trascender, por la calidad de sus promotores, a otros países.

Ambiental y Cual

En realidad buena parte de quienes firman el “Manifiesto” pertenecen a un “think tank” que tiene su sede muy cerca de aquí, en Oakland (en la “East Bay” de la Bahía de San Francisco). Se trata del “Breakthrough Institute” al que ya nos referimos anteriormente. Destacan los nombres de Ted NORDHAUS y Michael SHELLENBERGER, ambos fundadores del citado Instituto y co-autores del provocativo escrito “From the Death of Environmentalism”, así como designados en 2008, por la revista Time Magazine, “Heros of the Environment”. El documento del “Manifiesto” –que se encuentra disponible en lengua inglesa en la página web consta de una Introducción o Preámbulo y siete puntos programáticos. Paul CRUTZEN.
