2:15 – 3:15 PM         How to communicate effectively about marine renewable energy
Marine renewable energy is still a fairly new technology that is not widely known about or understood. Communicating to the public and stakeholders about the sector, the technology, costs and benefits, research findings, etc. can be challenging, particularly when topics such as energy and electricity are already complex subjects. This session will provide insight and tips on how to identify public and stakeholder communication needs and communicate effectively about your technology, business, or project.

Session host and presenter: Sean Kelly, Consultant, Sean Kelly Consulting
