Wind & Marine Energy Course: Lectures and Slides

As part of PRIMaRE’s remit to raise awareness and spread knowledge related to Marine Energy, we are pleased to share the lecture recordings and slides from the University of Bristol’s teaching unit on offshore renewables. The unit has been designed in collaboration with industry and the lectures are delivered by a range of leading figures from the offshore renewables sector. This year’s lectures include an inaugural lecture by Dr Andrew Garrad CBE, in his role as a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor in Renewable Energy.
