Nova chief joins Ocean Energy
Tidal boss Simon Forrest appointed to board of directors
Nova Innovation chief executive Simon Forrest has been appointed to the board of directors at Brussels-based trade body Ocean Energy Europe (OEE).
OEE said the tidal developer has become an increasingly prominent player in recent years and the appointment of Forrest would add weight at EU level and help guide the sector towards industrialisation.
OEE chief executive Rémi Gruet said: “Nova has earned a reputation for getting things done and they are now part of the vanguard of tidal energy developers pushing the sector towards commercial readiness.
“We look forward to working more closely with Simon Forrest and his team to help create a new European industrial sector capable of delivering 10% of Europe’s electricity supply by 2050.”
Forrest added: “OEE is the voice of our sector and plays a pivotal role in the development of tidal energy on a global scale.”
