Resolute Marine Energy Joins WOC

Resolute Marine Energy (RME) has joined the World Ocean Council (WOC) as the first company from the emerging marine renewable energy sector in the global ocean industry leadership coalition.

RME is developing and deploying technologies that harness ocean wave energy to produce electricity and fresh water in areas where there is a weak or non-existent electrical grid, and where desalination can have a positive impact for coastal communities.

RME’s CEO Bill Staby stated that, “We see the need and value to working with other ocean industries to tackle the policy and practical issues affecting the future of responsible use of marine areas and  resources. For example, the WOC efforts to engage industry in collecting and sharing ocean data through its ‘Smart Ocean /Smart Industries’ program provide an important role for ocean users to help  with understanding marine ecosystems and planning for their responsible use.”

Staby added that, “We encourage other leadership companies in the offshore renewables sector to get involved in the WOC. As emerging ocean users, wave, tidal, and offshore wind have much to gain  though collaboration in a cross-sectoral ocean industry alliance.”

WOC CEO Paul Holthus noted, “Newly developing ocean industries, such as offshore wave, tidal and wind, can benefit from collaboration with other sectors. Synergies, economies of scale and savings can  result from collective efforts to develop solutions to cross-sectoral challenges such as ocean noise, biofouling, marine mammal interactions and marine spatial planning.”
