Workshop I report: Ocean Energy Device Project Information and Experience. Dublin, October 15-16, 2013

Worldwide there are number of national marine energy device open water test sites currently in operation, in construction, or being planned for development. In addition, there are a number of ocean energy device manufacturers that have tested their devices at multiple open-water sites in varying environments.

This report presents the results of the Annex V inaugural workshop bringing together open-water test site operators and wave device developers to exchange information and experience on all aspects of planning, development, operation, and usage of open-water test facilities to identify possible improvements in the capabilities of these facilities for the mutual benefit of the entire ocean energy industry.
