Ocean Energy Europe’s annual event sets sail for The Hague in 2023

Next year’s Ocean Energy Europe Conference & Exhibition (OEE2023) will take place in The Hague, the Netherlands. The Dutch Marine Energy Community, led by the Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC) as platinum sponsor with local support from the Municipality of The Hague, is looking forward to hosting this exciting event in the so-called “City by the Sea”.

OEE2023 will bring together ocean technology developers, decision-makers, supply chain actors and researchers from around the world to share the latest news from the world of ocean energy, and to define the future direction of the sector.  Since the first edition in 2013, the annual Ocean Energy Europe Conference & Exhibition has grown to be the leading European event on ocean energy.

The Netherlands is a natural choice for next year’s conference and exhibition. Strengthened by the renowned Dutch offshore, maritime and delta tech sectors, the Netherlands is at the forefront of marine energy developments worldwide. In the growing Dutch Marine Energy Community, technology developers, research- and test facilities, policy makers, investors and corporates work together to develop global showcases for marine energy. Being the chair of North Seas Energy Cooperation in 2023, the Netherlands aims to take on a leading role in strengthening the collaboration between the North Sea regions. By joining forces, the Netherlands is well positioned to realise a third of the European targets for ocean energy by 2025 up till 2050.

The Hague, as an impact city, and its region offer local and at the same time unique international network opportunities to connect with stakeholders and communities at the forefront of renewable and sustainable energy. The city is the political capital of the Netherlands, home base for many embassies, industry partners and the Marine Energy Hub. Hosting this conference and exhibition is a great opportunity for local and international industry leaders to meet policy makers and address most pressing topics.

Britta Schaffmeister, CEO of DMEC, said“We are thrilled to welcome ocean energy stakeholders from all over the world in The Hague. The Dutch Marine Energy Community is looking forward to showcase best practices, share insights in approaches towards the blue economy and to  strengthen relationships during a wide variety of activities that will be organised. We are grateful to receive full support from local, regional and national public authorities, reflecting the ambition to take the next steps towards a net zero future.”
