Equitable Testing and Evaluation of Marine Energy Extraction Devices in terms of Performance, Cost and Environmental Impact: Identification of Limitations of the Current Practices Adopted for Early Stage Tidal and Wave Device Assessment
Wave and tidal energy technologies are in there infancy in commercial deployment and operation. Although many devices exist in concept, only a small number have progressed to scale testing either in test tank or scaled sea conditions. With a number of devices existing at the concept stage and all seeking resources to progress prototype models, it is important to establish what current practices are adopted to appraise the performance of concept devices and the quality checks implemented to ensure a degree of accuracy is attained when undertaking this. In addition to the assessment processes undertaken, it is also important to understand how data produced from this early assessment is presented and used in order to establish appropriateness.
