Dr Purnima Jalihal and Mr. PRASAD Dudhgaonkar National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT)

Academic institutions, like the Indian Institute of Technology at Chennai, are working on wave energy. The Indo-Australian Marine Renewable Energy Workshop in collaboration with Swinburne Univ., Australia was held on 4-5 April 2016. Recommendations were to work together by considering not only physical-sciences and engineering aspects, but also socio-economic factors for integrating Coastal Protection with Wave Energy. The workshop has led to several joint papers in the field of ocean energy especially with one joint comprehensive work on marine energies for coastal areas co-authored by Indian, Australian and European representatives.
