IEC Technical Committee (TC) 114, which develops standards for marine energy, is holding a plenary meeting in Delft, Netherlands. The meeting is hosted by NEN, Netherlands Standardization Institute and IEC member.
While marine energy has a great and often predictable source of power, important engineering challenges have restricted the scale of projects. These include operating in difficult conditions, and the effect the technology has on marine life and other marine users, such as the shipping

Nowadays, marine energy accounts for only a tiny proportion of the electricity produced from renewable sources. However it is forecast to represent a very sizeable share of the overall global supply by 2050, complementing other renewables such as sun and wind. To achieve this result,
Marine energy is emerging as a huge source of renewable energy but depends on disparate kinds of energies, all of which require different technologies for their full exploitation. IEC TC (Technical Committee) 114: Marine energy, prepares International Standards for this promising sect
