Second Workshop of Wave & Tidal Energy

16 to 18th, November 2016 in Valdivia

Since 2014, the world of Wave & Tidal Energy has encountered successes and adjustments. In December 2015, the COP 21 has been the first international climate commitment taken by at least 177 countries for reducing temperature increase. It gives to Marine Renewable Energy sector an immediate challenge to meet.

In that context, MERIC, Universidad Austral de Chile and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, jointly organize this “Second Workshop of Wave & Tidal Energy”. This year, a special attention is given to R&D breakthroughs that can address risk assessment issues for Marine Renewable Energy projects for future experiences, from mitigation, evaluation and forecasting, but also original research of another topics related to MRE are also welcome.

Poster session and social events are as well organized for all participants to initiate new venues of research as well as contacts and network updating.

We invite authors to submit abstracts for presentations at the WTE’16 workshop within any of the following themes:

  • · IMPACT OF MARINE RENAWABLE ENERGY DEVICES ON MARINE ENVIRONMENT ·

  • · ACCEPTABILITY OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES WITH ADEQUATE SOCIAL COMMITMENTS TOWADS STAKEHOLDERS ·

  • · GOOD PRACTICES ON TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT ·

  • · ACOUSTIC AND ELECTROMAGNETIC IMACT OF INSTALLATION OF MRE TECHNOLOGIES ·

  • · BIOGEOCHEMICAL HAZARDS APPLIED TO MRE ·

  • · EFFECTIVE RESOURCE AND ENVIRONMENT KNOWLEDGE ON MRE ·

  • · EXTREME EVENTS ASSESSMENT AND SURVIVABILITY OF MRE ·
