About ICOE 

The International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE) is a global marine energy event focused on the industrial development of renewable marine energy. Held every two years, the goal of the conference and exhibition is to share recent experiences from research and demonstration efforts. It aims to accelerate development by stimulating collaboration networks between companies and research and development centres.

The event is delivered by a host organization supported by an international committee of leading ocean energy influencers.




The IEA Technology Collaboration Programme – Ocean Energy Systems (OES) - provides a “home” for past ICOE conference material. This website is hosted and maintained by the OES and all papers from previous conferences are available in the Library.


The OES also organizes a “poster award” during ICOE, a cash prize to 3 students selected by an international jury, composed by members of the OES. This award on behalf of the OES is intended to identify an early career individual expected to continue to make significant contributions in making industrial ocean energy a reality.
