This event, now in its 10th edition, brought together the foremost experts and decision-makers in the field of ocean energy to discuss and advance the industry’s role in driving innovation and achieving a sustainable, net-zero future. It took place from 25-26 October.

“Driving Industry Through Innovation”

Under the theme “Driving Industry Through Innovation” OEE2023 delved into the strategies and technologies needed to ensure that the sector realises its full industrialisation potential. As the world races towards net-zero emissions, the conference emphasised the importance of innovative ocean energy solutions in securing Europe’s competitive advantage on the global stage.

Perfect backdrop for OEE2023

The announcement last year that OEE2023 was coming to The Hague was met with excitement and anticipation following a collaboration between The Dutch Marine Energy Centre (DMEC), the Municipality of The Hague and The Hague & Partners Convention Bureau to secure this event in the “City by the Sea.” With a growing reputation as an impact city, The Hague provided the perfect backdrop for OEE2023, offering opportunities to connect with key stakeholders and communities at the forefront of renewable and sustainable energy.

Bas Schot, Head of The Hague & Partners Convention Bureau, concluded: “This event once again demonstrated The Hague’s ability to attract leading conventions and conferences to our city. OEE2023 placed us at the heart of one of the world’s most exciting and important industries, whilst we welcomed the attendees as they made the most of our vibrant and exciting city.”
