It is time to take stand. Will you drive the Tidal Energy industry forwards?

We know that Tidal Energy is a viable alternative to fossil fuels but deploying the technology commercially has proven difficult to date. As an industry, we need to deliver on these projects, work together to find practical solutions, and put the industry on the front foot again.

But, this is not easy. Proving technology to secure finance, create bankable projects and ultimately lower LCOE are major challenges, challenges we must overcome.

The International Tidal Energy Summit is our opportunity to make this step change. To bring together the stakeholders who can truly influence the future of the Tidal Energy industry.

This isn’t going to be achieved by two days of talking heads. What is required is collaboration. Working groups with practical action points. Debates with purpose. Networking that matters.

If you believe you can influence change in the Tidal Energy industry and help us move towards commercial scale deployment, join us in London and be part of the solution.

The International Tidal Energy Summit - where change happens.

The 2019 International Tidal Energy Summit will bring together 120 dedicated tidal energy leaders. Although part of a larger 650 attendee offshore event, the intimacy and quality of the tidal event networking will be protected. We guarantee an environment where tidal attendees have the option but not the obligation to network with offshore wind professionals.
