Resource Assessment

We provide offshore renewable energy resource assessment services and support project site selection.

WavEC has a vast experience in the development of national and international strategic studies on offshore renewable energy resource assessment and site selection, supporting both governmental institutes at national planning level and farm operators and technology developers at individual project level.

WavEC resorts to high-quality data from various sources to estimate theoretical and technical potentials for electricity generation, as well as to analyze technical, economic and environmental constraints affecting offshore renewable energy project feasibility. This analysis typically culminates in the mapping of site suitability resorting to the in-house decision support GIS tool based on multi-criteria analysis.

Additionally, WavEC’s services extend to climate characterization and detailed energy resource assessment of selected sites, based on typical statistics of relevant parameters.
