Benefits from
international collaboration

The OES international co-operation facilitates:

  • Securing access to advanced R&D teams in the participating countries
  • Developing a harmonized set of measures and testing protocols for the testing of prototypes
  • Reducing national costs by collaborating internationally
  • Creating valuable international contacts between government, industry and science

The Executive Committee (ExCo) is continuing to develop a suite of information dissemination tools that will assist the OES in becoming a leading international authority on ocean energy. Ocean energy remains an emerging technology area and will continue to benefit from the existence of the international collaboration mechanism offered under the Implementing Agreement contract.
