IECRE Sectors - IECRE ME - Marine Energy

Marine energy is emerging as a huge and potentially unlimited source of power. Oceans cover more than 70% of Earth's surface; they are sources of huge kinetic energy from waves, currents and tides, and of thermal energy in the form of heat they collect from the sun.

IECRE Sectors - IECRE PV - Solar PV energy

As solar power is set to occupy a growing share of the future global energy mix, PV (photovoltaic) energy generation has been expanding dramatically in recent years. With new PV technologies being introduced all the time, a growing number of manufacturers offer many products incorporating PV modules.

IECRE Sectors - IECRE WE - Wind Energy

In spite of their often relatively simple appearance, wind turbines are sophisticated machines; converting mechanical wind energy to electrical power requires a number of components. The wind energy industry relies on component makers located throughout the world.
