Join the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) at the 2021 International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) and experience this year’s ICOE from anywhere in the world!

Every two years, ICOE draws international experts from the marine energy sectors to highlight device innovation, new market developments, and regulatory frameworks helping to spur progress around the world. The 2021 conference, hosted by the National Hydropower Association and sponsored by DOE’s Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO), will be held virtually April 28-30, 2021, and the theme is “Energizing a Powerful Blue Economy.”

Representatives from WPTO and the DOE national laboratories will participate in ICOE sessions and host side events, such as the 2021 Marine Energy Collegiate Competition, over the course of the week. This page will be updated as information becomes available about these speaking engagements and side events. We hope to see you online at ICOE 2021
