Marine Energy Standards TC114 

TC114 – “Marine energy – Wave, tidal and other water current converters” is a technical committee created in 2007 by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to prepare international standards for marine energy conversion systems. The primary focus is on conversion of wave, tidal and other water current energy into electrical energy, although other conversion methods, systems and products are included. The committee consists of members from 14 participating countries and 7 observing countries.

Standards Council of Canada’s Mirror Committee to TC 114 (SMC to TC114)
A Canadian mirror committee was formed shortly after the creation of TC114 to participate in all activities of this technical committee. The Canadian mirror committee meets on a regular basis through audio &/or video conferences to discuss existing standards development and proposed new work packages.
