Oregon Energy Future Conference
Apr 13 – Apr 14 all-day

Oregon’s leading forum for exploring the business side of clean energy, with content covering:

  • – Policy & Economic Development
  • – The Business of Renewable Energy
  • – The Business of Energy Efficiency
  • – Energy Technology & Innovation

Celebrating its tenth year, the Energy Future Conference is Oregon’s signature clean energy event, connecting policy with practice and addressing the industry’s current challenges and opportunities.

Apr 25 – Apr 28 all-day


MREC stands for International Marine Renewable Energy Conference (IMREC).

IMREC is an important and unique event to bring together individuals interested in marine energy to share challenges, find solutions, and continue to move this industry forward. IMREC is especially important this year since both the Global Marine Renewable Energy Conference (GMREC) event and the Energy Ocean event are NOT being held.

Topics being discussed at the IMREC event include:

  • Financing instruments and U.S. Federal R&D funding
  • Best management practices
  • Global regulatory developments regarding marine renewable energy
  • U.S. and international marine energy projects
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Design tools
  • Testing infrastructure
  • Offshore safety and construction
  • Evolving technology trends and markets
  • Wave and water current energy research

This conference is being presented by the newly formed National Hydropower Association Marine Energy Council – or MEC. Most members of the Council transitioned from the Ocean Renewable Energy Coalition (OREC), which ceased operations in January 2015.

The National Hydropower Association (NHA) is the official trade association for hydropower in the United States. By forming a council focused on Marine Energy, NHA is bringing the conventional and marine energy industries together under one roof.

NHA and members of the MEC believe this “under one roof” concept provides benefits to both industries as we collectively advocate the importance of all hydropower technologies as solutions to energy challenges.


The main objective of the Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS) is to provide a venue where technical experts can publish and present wave and water current energy research that helps accelerate the pace of Marine Energy technology development.

2016 marks the 4th annual METS and the second time METS has been held in conjunction with the International Marine Energy Conference (IMREC) and the National Hydropower Association (NHA) Annual Conference, which focus on non-technical policy, regulatory, and economic topics. Holding METS in conjunction with the IMREC and NHA conferences provides researchers with the invaluable opportunity to interact with public and private industry stakeholders.

California Offshore Wind Industry Symposium
Mar 2 all-day

The Pacific Ocean Energy Trust and the Business Network for Offshore Wind are pleased to invite you to attend the 2017 California Offshore Wind Industry Symposium, on March 2, in Sacramento, California. The Symposium will prominently feature representatives of the offshore wind industry, with the primary purpose of hearing from the industry regarding its vision, key issues, and limitations.

The State of California has already begun to consider the offshore wind opportunity, in part in response to Trident Wind’s 1 GW offshore wind project proposed off the Central California coast at Morro Bay. At the request of the state, the Bureau of Ocean Energy and Management (BOEM) recently initiated its BOEM Taskforce, and the California Energy Commission held a hearing on the topic of offshore wind earlier this year. BOEM also hosted the California Offshore Energy Conference in early November.

General registration is $295, although there is a $100 discount for members of the Business Network for Offshore Wind, members of the Pacific Ocean Energy Trust, and registrants from nonprofits and government.
