The Center for Ocean Energy Technology (COET) at Florida Atlantic University hosted a workshop entitled “Offshore Ocean Energy: A University-Industry-Government Dialog” in Boca Raton, FL. The purpose of the workshop was to engage in a discussion of non-proprietary issues, requirements, and development challenges concerning hydrokinetic energy development in the offshore environment. At the conclusion of the workshop, RME CEO Bill Staby remarked, “This was a landmark event in the U.S. marine renewable energy industry because it brought together representatives of almost every stakeholder group with an interest in what goes on in state and federal waters.” “It was important in terms of establishing a meaningful dialog and building a foundation of understanding and trust.”
