European Space Week EUSW2018, Invited talk Space as a tool supporting the energy package in the Marine and Maritime session

On invitation by the European Commission, I presented in the Marine and Maritime session (see also: GSA news, Schedule, Slideshare) on how space data is now being used to support our future energy security. This focused on how the European Commission Copernicus initiative and its Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) is making a difference to Ocean Energy research and industry.

In collaboration with Bluerise and TU Delft MSc student Maria Lems-de Jong, we have used a combination of assimilated data from satellites and local observations to analyse how Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) devices would perform.

The talk starts in the Marine and Maritime session.
