4th Offshore Energy Storage (OSES) Symposium - Jul 12–14

The 4th Offshore Energy Storage (OSES) Symposium, the first time in the US, will be held July 12-14, 2017 at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution [WHOI] in Clark 507.  Nils Bolgen, Wind Program Director at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Centre [MassCEC], will be at WHOI on Wednesday, July 12, to make a presentation at OSES on "Leading Strategic Investment in Clean Energy Systems" at 3:00 p.m. There will be an introduction by WHOI President and Director, Mark Abbott, to open OSES on Tuesday.  Fifty presentations including panel discussions are scheduled (see https://www.osessociety.com/oses2017) over the three days.  The topics include offshore power generation by wind, tide, and waves; energy storage to reduce the requirements for delivery ashore while providing power as needed despite irregular environmental sourcing; and financial, policy, and assessment of the resource.

Registration will be required to attend the symposium.  To register, see the website above.  However to thank the Institution for providing this facility, there will be an IEEE/Oceanic Engineering Society Chapter meeting open to the entire community for free with talks by the organizers, Rupp Carriveaux, Seamus Garvey, and Tony Santo at 5:30 p.m., in Clark 507 on Friday, July 14.
