Application of Technology, Knowledge and Practice from other Sectors
Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult
The Wave Energy sector is an emerging and dynamic industry where numerous opportunities exist for novel applications of existing technologies and processes from other sectors. To achieve breakthroughs in affordability, wave energy conversion systems (WECS) must first secure survivability, high availability, a low capital and operational cost base and high performance. Drawing upon established or innovative technologies from other sectors offers the opportunity to accelerate progress.
An assessment has been carried out of the technological challenges facing the wave energy sector and of the cross-sector potential for technology transfer.
