Climate change is expected to have an impact on wind patterns, and therefore the generation of waves. Phase 6 of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6), provides various realization of outputs integrated global coupled models for different centuries. Wind quality is a cornerstone for wave energy as it is the primary generation driver...

Utilization of Boundary Element Method (BEM) based on linear potential flow for modelling Oscillating Water Column (OWC) devices has gained popularity in the last two decades. The commercial BEM solver WAMIT has been used widely for modelling OWCs and validated using experimental modelling (Delauré et. al. 2003, Bingham et. al. 2015, Faÿ 2020)....

Wave energy is a rich and highly accessible renewable energy resource, that has largely been under-developed. Studies from the sector have tried to show the potential of benefits wave energy in “simple cases” or via small hybrid systems, the large scale incorporation of wave energy has not yet been fully investigated. Our approach uses a fully...

To date there is a wide range of wave reanalysis and hindcasts available to the scientific and engineering community which are commonly used for different applications, including downscaling or the estimation of the wave energy resource (Morim et al., 2022). These long datasets have been created using different combinations of forcing fields,...

A series of short and mid-term guidelines have been established due to the pursuit to offer clean energy and reduce the environmental impact in the Mediterranean and European environment. Currently, the scientific community and the industrial sector promote to find new technologies and means to achieve these regulations. Efforts to provide...

Wave energy is one of the most dense, predictable, and persistent energy sources, that has gone under-utilised, with many countries exposed to it. Depending on orientation with regards of coastal fronts to swells, resources can be characterised as high, moderate, and low. Wave energy can provide significant benefits as renewables acquire more...

Wave Energy Converters (WEC) have seen a wide variety of innovations capable to harness the vast untapped energy source of the seas. This wide range of WECs often has varied applicability and power production capabilities, making the selection of a device overwhelming. These uncertainties are increased when<br/>considering the interactions and...

It is expected that several identical Point Absorber Wave Energy Converters (PAWECs) will be arranged in arrays to form a Wave Energy Farm. One of the key challenges in designing such a WEC array is their spatial configuration, as the WECs in the farm interact hydrodynamically with each other. This study focuses on different potential PAWEC...

To properly assess the energy and waves at a region, it is vital to obtain suitable long term metocean conditions. Although, wave buoys are a significant source of information they are not able to provide a detailed and complete resource assessment, as they have inherent spatiotemporal and recording limitations. Therefore, numerical wave models...

Improving availability of tidal turbines has been identified as a key area to lower the levelized cost of energy from tides. One of the approaches suggested to achieve high reliability is to use a flooded permanent magnet (PM) generator. Flooded PM generators are designed to operate with a seawater filled stator-rotor gap in the generator. Using...

With the renewable targets of 2020 reaching ever closer, Europe is continuing its ambitious plans for 2030 of developing innovative projects that assist tackling climate change and increase renewable energy integration. The Netherlands are trying to develop their renewable energy portfolio, to create a viable long-term decarbonized sustainable...

A versatile numerical model for the simulation of flow past horizontal axis tidal turbines has been developed. Currently most large-scale marine models employed to study marine energy use the shallow water equations and therefore can fail to account for important turbulent physics. The model presented here is based on actuator disc momentum (ADM...
