The Opportunity Supergen ORE Hub - Co-directors
The UK is at the forefront of the development, adoption and export of Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) technologies. If we are going to maintain that world-leading position we need to continue to spearhead research and innovation in ORE. The Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Hub vision is to bring together and stimulate synergistic adventurous research that supports and accelerates the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal technologies for society’s benefit.
The hub will be central to the UK ORE community, bringing together shared skills and expertise, allowing transfer of fundamental knowledge, shared learning and use of resources for inter-disciplinary research, whilst taking a whole systems approach. Differing maturities of wave, tidal and OW allow rapid advances towards deployment and societal benefit through timely sharing of expertise, strategies and best practice between the three sectors.
Each Supergen ORE Hub partner institution is represented on our Management Board by a Co-director. They're all academic experts across a range of engineering specialties - be it in offshore wind, wave or tidal technology. Together they bring an essential perspective enabling us to fulfil our mission of providing research leadership into Offshore Renewable Energy.
Each co-director is responsible for an area of our work, and a number of them are champions and specialists for different disciplines.
