Article for the OPEN Energy Technology Bulletin of the International Energy Agency.

Exploiting the energy of the oceans has for long attracted the talents of innovators. Today, concrete efforts are mobilising numerous technologies to exploit the world’s vast ocean energy resources. The role of these technologies is set to grow steadily in the drive for reliable, cost-competitive and environmentally sound energy. The IEA Implementing Agreement on Ocean Energy Systems (IEA-OES) brings together a fast growing number of stakeholder countries to facilitate and co-ordinate ocean energy research, development, demonstration and wider market deployment. 

The OES is organised under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA) but is functionally and legally autonomous. Views, findings and publications of the OES do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or its individual member countries.
