Rabbitte has wind in sails at conference
Energy Minister Pat Rabbitte has been making waves at the International Conference on Ocean Energy -- telling delegates that Ireland is determined to develop its renewable energy resources.
More than 750 experts in this area, plus world-leading companies from the United States, Australia and Europe, descended on Dublin's Convention Centre for the three-day conference.
Global industry and academic experts in marine renewable energy will present over 100 papers on themes important to developing the industry.
Mr Rabbitte said an updated ocean energy strategy would be published by the end of the year.
