Evaluation and Guidance Framework for Ocean Energy Technology

IEA-OES Webinar

Date: February 24, 2021

This webinar introduced the concept and content of the Evaluation and Guidance Framework that resulted from a collaborative work led by the European Commission and delivered by the Wave Energy Scotland, the U.S. Department of Energy, and a number of other representatives from the OES Executive Committee.
It further presented the criteria used to evaluate technologies and the recommended engineering activities to be carried out at each stage of the technology development process.
Main goal of this webinar was to bring a high-level discussion of the importance of technology evaluation and guidance in the ocean energy sector, ensuring that decision-makers have consistent information available to them.
