Pan-American Marine Energy Conferences are designed to complement similar research collaboration conferences in Europe (European Wave and Tidal Energy Conferences or EWTEC) and in Asia (Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference or AWTEC). The PAMEC.Energy Association was established to be an ongoing organization to provide continuity between Conferences, and to support research and development in a range of marine renewable energy activities including offshore wind, wave, tidal, salinity gradients, and thermal gradients. The association maintains this website and publishes a newsletter to connect members with activities throughout the Americas including the Caribbean. See this page for more Background Information on PAMEC.


PAMEC.Energy Association has legal status under the Nova Scotia (Canada) Societies Act. The Purpose of the organization and its by-laws are intended to support a broad membership of individuals who are interested in research and development in marine renewables in the Americas. The PAMEC.Energy Association Bylaws have been approved by the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stock Companies.

Board of Directors

The founding Board of Directors consisted of individuals with a lengthy background and interest in Marine Renewable Energy matters. Over the course of 2018 more members are expected to join PAMEC.Energy Association and a full slate of 10 Directors will be put into place. Information on our 2018 Board of Directors may be found here.

Organizational Structure

PAMEC has a number of Committee/Boards to help us plan and implement our conferences. The PAMEC.Energy Association Board of Directors is the overall governing body, but the Technical and Program Board as well as the Local Organizing Committee play significant roles in ensuring the conferences we hold are relevant and useful in supporting renewable research and development activities in and from the marine environment. To tie us into the International Research Communities represented by EWTEC and AWTEC, we also have an International Advisory Board. Details of the Organizational Structure may be found here.
