Ocean Renewable Energy Conference 2021
Leadership. Experience. Solutions.

OREC '21 was held September 22-24, 2021. Please visit the Conference Archives or the Whova app for more information about this event. 

It is with great excitement that POET announces the return of the Ocean Renewable Energy Conference in 2021! This is still the conference you have come to know from the past 14 years, but we will be 100% virtual this year out of consideration for the health and safety of all our attendees.

To ensure extra flexibility for those in attendance of this virtual event, this year's conference will be extended to three days. Sessions and panel discussions will be held on September 22 and 23, and September 24 will be devoted to interactive virtual workshops. We can't wait to bring the industry back together for a long overdue gathering, even if that's through our screens and microphones.

We will continue to provide additional information in the coming weeks, but we are excited to see your friendly faces and creative virtual backgrounds very soon.

P.S. – For those of you who have already registered to attend in person, we will automatically refund the difference in registration fees. If you would prefer a full refund please contact us at and we will process that for you individually.
