EMEC Recognized at Rushlight Awards

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has won the ‘Marine and Hydro Energy’ award at the Rushlight Awards 2016-17.

The Rushlight Awards aim to support and promote all the latest clean technologies, innovations, initiatives and deployment projects for businesses and other organisations throughout the UK, Ireland and internationally.

Accepting the award, Eileen Linklater, EMEC’s client relationship and marketing manager, said:

“It is an honor to be recognized for our role in facilitating innovation, among some of the most pioneering clean-tech companies around, at a time when UK government commitment to supporting innovation is ramping up. At the Rushlight event we heard Nick Hurd, Minister for State at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy emphasize the importance of innovation in creating an economy that works for everyone.

“The advances in marine energy that we’ve seen at EMEC demonstrate how wave and tidal energy research, development and innovation can create skilled jobs in coastal communities, as well as a nationwide supply chain – a clear fit with the government’s new Industrial Strategy.

“With the first machines tested at EMEC now deployed in the first commercial tidal arrays in Scotland and Canada, marine energy’s place as an important part of the UK’s future energy mix and a valuable export opportunity is closer than ever.”

The awards ceremony, held at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, London, on January 25, 2017, was attended by the organisations leading the way in clean technology innovation and sustainable solution deployment, investors, advisers, specialist and general media, trade associations and government departments.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
