Development of a Data Management Platform for the integration of European Wave Energy Impact Assessment datasets

Date: November 05, 2013 at 15:50 GMT

An absence of coordinated policies across Europe for the environmental and socio-economic impact assessment (IA) of wave energy projects is seen by many as an obstacle to the development of the wave energy sector. The generation of IA tools that facilitate the decision-making process by providing easy to access and understand data is encouraged. The SOWFIA project aims to capitalize upon the experiences of IA from EU wave energy test sites by developing a GIS-based Data Management Platform (DMP). 

The OES is organised under the auspices of the International Energy Agency (IEA) but is functionally and legally autonomous. Views, findings and publications of the OES do not necessarily represent the views or policies of the IEA Secretariat or its individual member countries.
