Marine Renewable Energy
6th -7th March 2024
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the most relevant marine renewable energy sources, along with their respective harvesting technologies. The lectures encompass wave and tidal energy, as well as offshore wind energy, offering insights into both engineering and commercial aspects. Practical exercises are incorporated to enhance understanding of the subject matter. The course also examines the integration of marine energy devices into various coastal, nearshore, and offshore structures, and explores the synergies between marine renewable energy technologies and other marine activities. Key topics covered include resource estimation, different types of harvesting technologies and their design and applicability, the alignment of marine renewable energy with current EU and UK policies and strategies, and cost-benefit analyses. Furthermore, the course addresses design principles, installation procedures, commissioning requirements, and decommissioning protocols for these technologies, incorporating exercises specific to each technology
