PAMEC is a non-profit organization created to bring together researchers in marine renewable energy in the Americas (including the Caribbean) by means of the Pan-American Marine Energy Conference, a research conference that is part of a global network of conferences that includes the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) and the Asian Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (AWTEC). PAMEC is intended to foster the development of marine renewable energy through collaboration among researchers, industry, and government.
