Equitable Testing and Evaluation of Marine Energy Extraction Devices in terms of Performance, Cost and Environmental Impact: Protocols for wave and tidal resource assessment
A wave or tidal resource assessment should provide a quantified estimate of the available energy and an assessment of the operating and survival characteristics of a specific site. This process may be performed through a combination of in-situ measurements and numerical modelling. Key elements described in this protocol include: measurement and raw data analysis; key descriptive parameters; numerical modelling guidance; assessment of extreme conditions; and the identification of constraints on development. The protocol does not consider the interaction of the device with the environment or potential interference due to multiple devices located at one site.
