IWES presents marine energy research highlights at the 4th International Conference on Ocean Energy

18.09.2012
Fraunhofer IWES will present their latest findings in the fields of wave prediction methods and measurement of dynamic effects in tidal currents (turbulences and waves). Furthermore highlights from the internationally recognized ORECCA project (international network for offshore renewables) as well as the MaRINET (European offshore wind and marine energy infrastructure project) and Kobold II (tidal turbine for the electric power supply of a village in Indonesia) projects will be issued.

Held every two years, the conference and exhibition International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) is being hosted by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) in association with the European Ocean Energy Association (EUOEA) in Dublin this year after venues in Bremerhaven, Brest and Bilbao.

Over 100 speakers from 25 countries and over 750 international experts and world-leading companies in ocean energy are expected. There they will discuss how best to progress this emerging industry with representatives of the European Commission and other international politicians, i.a. Ireland’s Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources Pat Rabbitte TD and Canadian Minister of State Bernard Valcourt.

Fraunhofer IWES will be present with a joint stand together with British consulting company for renewable energy IT Power. Besides the information exchange at the stand, IWES researchers are going to hold oral and poster presentations regarding the research projects MaRINET (European offshore wind and marine energy infrastructure project), ORECCA (international network for offshore renewables) and Kobold II (tidal turbine for the electric power supply of a village in Indonesia) as well as wave prediction methods and measurement of dynamic effects in tidal currents (turbulences and waves).

The ICOE 2012 takes place from October 17th to 19th 2012 in the Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland.

Im Focus: First diode for magnetic fields

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.

Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
