The overall aim of the LiftWEC project is to prove the technical, environmental, social and economic feasibility of a radically new wave energy converter concept that exploits hydrodynamic lift forces and can form part of the backbone of energy system by 2050.
- “Equality Officer” role – contribution with WavEC’s expertise to the identification of promising configurations of the LiftWEC concept that may minimise environmental impacts and ensure social acceptance
- Application of tools for impact assessment both on marine and social (public acceptance) environments
