    A new report out today from Cambridge Econometrics in collaboration with Pr. Paul Ekins of University College London, shows that meeting the UK climate targets recommended by the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC) makes clear economic sense for the UK. Reducing the UK’s carbon emissions in line with these budgets would, by 2030, increase […]

    A 1:20 scale model of Seacap was successfully tested at the French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA) wave tank facility at Val de Reuil (Normandy). Seacap was tested in a variety of regular and irregular sea state conditions replicating conditions found on the Atlantic coast of France. Preliminary results indicate that power output is in line […]

    Pioneering research could provide a significant boost in the vital quest to harness wave power as a viable renewable energy source for the future. Scientists from the University of Exeter have studied how wave energy developers can more accurately measure, and predict the wave conditions within wave energy test sites. The research, which is published […]

    DNV GL yesterday released WaveFarmer and TidalFarmer; the world’s first marine energy planning tools to be made commercially available. A major barrier to the growth of the marine energy industry is the risk associated with projects and the accompanying uncertainty of return on investment. Engineers face a large number of unknowns at the start of […]

    ABPmer has extended its SEASTATES service to include the Baltic Sea. As with their SEASTATES service for other regions, the Baltic forecast combines meteorological data with high resolution wave models and is validated against local observations. In the forecast, this means that the models are continuously “trained” so improving the accuracy of the “raw” forecasts. […]
