Mission and Vision


The mission of POES is to promote, incentivize, and advance the harnessing and sustainable use of ocean energies, such as wave, tidal current, salinity gradient, and thermal gradient. Moreover, POES aims to construct a multidisciplinary platform, created by, and for, students and young researchers, to establish synergy between ocean energy and other interdisciplinary fields. In turn, this will help promote conversations where knowledge is shared and fostered for the future use of ocean energy in the Pan-American region.


Contribute to the UN sustainable development goals and achieve full representation in the PAR, play a key role in promoting the development of ocean energy under the conditions and context of the region. Join the portfolio of international networks with a similar vision in order to determine the best paths toward a more heterogeneous electricity market, which can allow for the transformation towards a blue and equitable economy.
