Marine Energy Technology Symposium 2014


Seattle, Washington, US

April 15, 2014 – April 17, 2014


The 2nd Annual Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS) will be held on April 15-17 in Seattle, WA in conjunction with the Global Marine Renewable Energy Conference (GMREC).

METS provides a venue where technical experts can publish and present wave and water current energy research that helps accelerate the pace of technology development. Holding METS in conjunction with GMREC provides researchers with the invaluable opportunity to interact with public and private industry stakeholders.

Last year’s inaugural METS was a great success and consisted of over 40 technical presentations and 30 technical papers. All accepted papers were published in open-access format and are available online.

Thank you to everyone who made last years METS a success. We look forward to seeing you in Seattle in 2014!

Call for Papers: Abstracts Due October 25th, 2013 Extended to November 1st, 2013

The METS organizing committee is seeking papers that focus on the design, analysis, and economic evaluation of wave energy and water current energy converter technologies. This year, we are also adding an environmental monitoring track to encourage dissemination of environmental research that is relevant to the marine energy industry. Specific areas of interest are:

  • Device design, analysis, and simulation
  • Design optimization methods
  • Materials and coatings
  • Design and analysis of mooring systems
  • Array optimization and layout
  • Environmental monitoring techniques
  • Device deployment strategies
  • Operations and maintenance strategies
  • Cost-of-energy modeling
  • Code validation & verification
Authors whose final papers are accepted will be given the opportunity to give a 25 minute presentation at METS describing their work. Information on how to prepare and submit abstracts and full papers can be found here.
