Where there’s ocean energy…
The Opportunities Center for Marine Energy is located at Runde Miljøsenter because we are close to the sea and can experience large boats just outside the windsurge. Several different companies have had, or are in the process of planning, testing of wave power plants at Runde. On days of big waves it is easy to see that here is the big effort in turn.

At Runde Miljøsenter there are researches before marine biology, oceanography and conjunctions between different ecosystems in the sea and on land. The skilled professionals gladly share their interdisciplinary knowledge with visiting.
