AWATEA’s Affiliation with other Ocean Energy Associations

Over the last few months AWATEA has signed Affiliation agreements with the Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET)  and, more recently, with the Ocean Renewable Energy Group (OREG). These agreements effectively allow each organization to have the same rights as though they were members of the other organizations. This does not mean that individual members of AWATEA have the same rights in OREG or OWET as their own members but does mean we may have opportunities for joint activities that will be beneficial to both organizations and our members.

The Executive is looking at establishing similar relationships with other similar organizations and welcomes suggests from members for such relationships.
