Plenary 2: Using Energy from the Ocean

07 February 2023

Dr. Thuttai Keeratipongpaiboon from the Office of the National Economic and Social Development Council (NESDC), Kingdom of Thailand, delivered the opening remarks which set the scene for the inclusion of all sea-space users. Inez Marquez shared what was happening in the green hydrogen space and possible inclusion in MARES-type projects.  The second panel of the day, titled “Integrating Micro-, Small-, and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSME) into New Ocean Energy Economy”, discussed just transition, engaging with stakeholders, and how larger infrastructure developments can make space for smaller sea-space users.

The winning pitch was announced. Congratulations to the team of Subic Blue.  Honorable mention was made for three pitches that demonstrated the multifunction approach and showed clear benefits to all sea-space users.
