THE SUMMIT

The Australian Ocean Energy Group’s Market Summit is its signature event, supporting our primary aim to increase market adoption of renewable ocean energy in Australia.

We’re about creating supply and demand by connecting end users (‘markets’) with ocean energy system suppliers and renewable energy project specialists to advance commercialisation of Australia’s ocean energy sector.

The 2022 Market Summit is built around the findings of AOEG’s current Australian Ocean Energy Market Investigation Project (Phase 1), which will help build understanding about key markets for ocean energy.

The Market Summit is designed to create meaningful, information-based connections between Australian market representatives and industry leaders, such as project developers, technology providers, supply chain, investors, funders, researchers, stakeholders, policy makers and communities.

Designed as an interactive event, the Summit is open to anyone with an interest in the ‘blue economy’ – the range of economic uses of ocean and coastal resources – exploring the technology, process and economics of capturing energy from waves and tides, with particular focus on how to deliver that energy to an end user in a commercially successful project.

AOEG wishes to thank the Blue Economy CRC as its major sponsor for this event as well as Aquatera, AOEG’s program partner.

THE PROGRAM

The program will use the outcomes of existing programs and knowledge, input from interactive discussions and expert input to help achieve the following:

  • Identify the priority markets for wave and tidal technologies and integrated ocean energy systems in Australia.
  • Examine key challenges these priority markets face in relation to energy transition and decarbonisation.
  • Explain how ocean energy projects in priority markets are designed and implemented, to better understand the opportunities and overcome challenges identified.
  • Demonstrate how AOEG’s emerging Ocean Energy Marketplace can help inform stakeholders, mitigate investment risk and facilitate commercial ocean energy projects.
  • Identify key research to support the market’s adoption of ocean energy and the sustainable development of Australia’s ocean energy industry.
  • Highlight global and Australian advancements in the ocean energy sector.
