The objective of this programme is to design, develop and demonstrate advanced control systems for Wave Energy Converters (WECs) and sub-systems which will deliver improvements in performance, affordability, survivability and reliability.

Sophisticated control systems could be a key enabler to the development of economically viable WEC technology.

The projects below were announced by Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy, Scottish Government on September 13th, 2017. 13 teams will undertake a Stage 1 project.
