For the past five years, Regen SW, sponsored by Bristol City Council, has facilitated the popular Bristol Tidal Energy Forum, an industry group set up to support the development of tidal energy in the south west of England.
Project duration: (2011 – ongoing)
Although the forum started out with a south west focus, it has evolved over the past ten events, reaching an international audience. Since the first event, a combined total of over 500 delegates have attended from 11 different countries, with attendees from all parts of the supply chain coming together to network, do business and learn more about the burgeoning tidal energy sector. In between events, attendees are encouraged to continue networking through the Linkedin group.
Presentations from past events can be seen here.
The next forum will take place in the spring of 2017.
