Description

This summery report was prepared to the OES IA under ANNEX II: Development of Recommended Practices for Testing and Evaluating Ocean Energy Systems.


The present summary report has been prepared to show how the guidelines given in the task reports can be used to present device performance and system design.

Some guidelines to economic assessment of wave and tidal systems are given.

Finally an overview of the history of Annex II is given as well as a short summary of each of the task reports.

  • Report 02-1.1 Generic and site related wave data
  • Report 02-1.2 Guidance for assessing tidal current energy resource
  • Report 02-2.1 Wave energy development protocol
  • Report 02-2.2 Tidal energy development protocol
  • Report 02-3.1 Preliminary wave energy device performance protocol
  • Report 02-3.2 Preliminary tidal energy device performance protocol
  • Report 02-3.3 Guidelines for the design basis of marine energy converters
