  • Title: OUR VISION | MaREI
    Descriptive info: Our Vision.. http://marei.. ie/wp-content/uploads/slideshow-gallery/MaREI.. jpg.. Increased population levels and improved standards of living are putting an ever-increasing demand on global energy supplies.. In the face of finite conventional fuel sources and international restrictions on carbon emissions, there is therefore an urgent need for clean, secure and affordable sources of energy, particularly in geographically-isolated locations.. In this regard, Ireland is uniquely placed in terms of its enviable marine renewable energy resource, having one of the world’s highest wave and offshore wind resources, together with a favourable tidal regime.. The total resource contained in our marine  ...   and technologies.. However, systems to harness MRE resources are at an early stage of development, and face significant challenges that will require innovative solutions to reduce time to market, and reduce costs to a reasonable level.. These challenges cover all aspects of technology development, including energy conversion and storage, transmission and integration, as well as enabling ICT technologies and environmental considerations.. To this end, it is the aim of MaREI to secure Ireland’s position as a global leader in Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) by focussing on technological breakthroughs, delivered through cutting-edge science and engineering research..
