WASHINGTON, March 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Hydropower Association (NHA) Marine Energy Council proudly presents the inaugural International Marine Renewable Energy Conference (IMREC) and the 3rd Annual Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS). Co-locating the events with the NHA Annual Conference provides an invaluable opportunity for water power technology professionals, policy makers, NGOs, academia, consultants, component suppliers and service professionals to address the full spectrum of marine energy and put the latest issues on the table for discussion. All three events will take place this April 27-29 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.
"Bringing the conventional and marine energy industries together under one roof provides benefits to both as we collectively advocate the importance of all hydropower technologies as solutions to our nation's energy challenges," said NHA Executive Director Linda Church Ciocci.
Introducing IMREC and METS at the NHA Annual Conference, addresses much more than local challenges. The international collaboration connects a diverse group of industry professionals from the hydro, wave, tidal, ocean current and riverine sectors to represent the global hydropower industry and educate one another on value of hydro and marine energy in current and future markets. From the most important regulatory issues and policy, as well as technological advancements, development and opportunities for growth in generation and stable distribution of electricity, this collaborative effort champions hydropower in all its forms.
