Demonstration of ocean energy devices in real sea conditions for long periods of time is an essential step to commercialisation. It demonstrates cost-effectiveness, reduces risks and attracts investors for future commercial projects.
Several wave energy developers are now installing and demonstrating their scale or full-scale devices in European waters. These first-of-a-kind deployments generate valuable learnings that will be applied to the next generation of devices and the first pilot farms.
In this joint ETIP Ocean and Ocean DEMO webinar, you will hear about real sea experiences from two wave energy developers. Mocean and AWS will share what worked – and what didn’t – in their recent deployments, so that you increase the chances of succeeding in your own real sea demonstration.
