On the second day, the guest speakers made general presentations on the perspectives of some European initiatives, such as ETIP Ocean, and Ocean Energy Systems, in the field of marine renewables.Joaquín Hernández Brito, Scientific-Technical and Innovation Co-ordinator at PLOCAN, held a lecture highlighting the role the test beds like PLOCAN play in tackling the non-technological aspects relating to testing and validating marine renewable prototypes.Also, Raúl Rodríguez Arias from Tecnalia, and Patxi Etxaniz from Oceantec, respectively shared the operating experience in real open sea conditions of a prototype aimed to lowering the cost of wave energy.The agenda also included a range of constructive discussions on finances, business models and innovation or action plans, together with an analysis of gaps and priorities in the field of marine renewable energies.last_img read more
