AW Energy chief executive John Liljelund has been elected to the board of directors of marine trade body Ocean Energy Europe.

Liljelund was elected at OEE’s Annual General Meeting in Brussels.

OEE said the appointment would strengthen the wave energy focus at the industry body as the sector moves towards commercial readiness.

Liljelund has a decade of commercial experience in developing Finnish outfit AW Energy’s WaveRoller technology.

“The next few years will be a defining period for the ocean energy industry as it deploys pilot commercial projects. Ensuring that the European industry is following the right strategic path will be fundamental to success,” said OEE chief executive Remi Gruet.

Liljelund said: “I believe that one of the key objectives for the ocean energy sector now is market development. The imperative for progress is the success of as many members of the ocean energy community as possible.”
