Simon Ambühl, Morten Kramer and John Dalsgaard Sørensen – Energies, December 2014

Abstract

More and more wave energy converter (WEC) concepts are reaching prototype level. Once the prototype level is reached, the next step in order to further decrease the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) is optimizing the overall system with a focus on structural and maintenance (inspection) costs, as well as on the harvested power from the waves.  Continue reading
