IMPACT to Host Joint Side Event with VALID at ICOE-OEE

Update: IMPACT at Global Ocean Energy Conference

When: 20 October, 11:30-13:00
Where: Room 9 (Side event room 2), ICOE-OEE 2022

Is hybrid testing the key to accelerating wave energy development?

The IMPACT project, together with the VALID project, aim to explore this question in their joint side event at ICOE-OEE 2022.

Answering the same Horizon-2020 call topic to develop new test rig devices for accelerating ocean energy technology development, both the IMPACT and VALID project are tasked with streamlining the testing process—and ultimately the path to market—for ocean energy technology.

On Thursday 20 October, join wave energy developers, researchers and industry professionals from across Europe as they discuss the benefits of hybrid testing in ocean energy, creating a methodology framework for hybrid testing, and as they highlight the challenges and key achievements from each project so far.

Following the presentation, Aquatera Ltd director Gaynor Jones will host a Q&A with our panelists from CorPower Ocean, IDOM, Yavin Four Consultants and SINTEF Ocean.
