Conference Overview


As carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuels has been found to be the major cause of ongoing global warming, renewable energy is now receiving more attention. Various possible candidates for renewable energy¯other than solar or wind energy, which are currently at the forefront of renewable energy options¯that could be extracted from the ocean are also being re-evaluated.

This trend has been further accelerated because of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident. Several national projects that focus on the development of ocean energy commenced last year in Japan. Surrounded by vast oceans, Japan has great potential to utilise ocean energy. This should also hold true for the United Kingdom, which is surrounded by oceans as well. Actually, in the U.K., the development of ocean energy has been extensively carried out.

Under these circumstances, the Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers (JASNAOE) and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) will organize the World NAOE Forum 2013 & International Symposium on Marine and Offshore Renewable Energy in October 2013. We believe the Forum and Symposium are well timed and thus contribute to the promotion of the use of ocean energies not only in Japan and the U.K. but also in other countries.

Conference Content

The World NAOE Forum 2013 & International Symposium on Marine and Offshore Renewable Energy (WNF&MORE2013) will be held on 28­-30 October 2013, organized by JASNAOE and RINA in Tokyo, JAPAN.

The conference, which will consist of a 1-day forum and a 2-day symposium, is a premier conference for the presentation of new advancements and research results in theoretical and experimental works on marine and offshore renewable energy, such as marine current power, wind power, wave power, tidal power, ocean thermal energy, and their applications

The conference will bring together leading researchers, engineers, and scientists in the domain of interest from around the world. Topics of interest for submission include but are not limited to

1) Projects in recent years in Japan, East-Asia, and EU countries
2) Devices, systems and technologies of marine and offshore renewable energy
3) Vessels for installation, support operation, and removal stage
4) Mooring equipment for floating systems
5) Other topics
