The Global Partnership for Ocean Wave Energy Technology
November 4-6, 2019
The Global Partnership for Ocean Wave Energy Technology is a sustainable development multi-stakeholder partnership (MSP) that aims to identify the stakeholders, mechanisms, and funding sources required to develop a zero-emissions technology capable of utility-level electrical power generation from ocean waves. Should deployment of the underlying technology be realized, it has the potential to transform the energy supply of small island developing states (SIDS) and other coastal communities. With the cooperation of SIDS governments to train local people in the skills needed to support the technology, the jobs, and marketable energy products that would result offer the potential for the societal challenge envisioned in the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, supporting resilient societies and economies that can adapt to climate change.
