Wave Energy Scotland supports the development of Advanced Control Systems technology for wave energy devices with almost £1m.
Two projects were selected for this phase of development, where the control systems technology will be demonstrated in model wave devices in Scottish wave tanks. Advanced Control Systems technology increases the amount of energy that wave energy can capture, thus reducing the cost of electricity generation. The results of the projects will be seen in the testing of two wave energy devices in Orkney next year.
This is one of the many wave energy projects that Wave Energy Scotland has invested in, rising the total amount to £39.6m. Other focus areas have been the best technologies for wave devices, power take-off technology and structural materials.
More information about the projects can be found here.
