Wave Energy in Southern Europe
The project aims to develop environmental monitoring around wave energy converters (WECs) operating at sea; to develop efficient guidance for planning and consenting procedures in Spain and Portugal for WE projects to better inform decision-makers and managers on environmental real risks and reduce environmental consenting uncertainty; to develop and implement innovative maritime spatial planning (MSP) Decision Support Tools (DSTs) for Portugal and Spain for site selection of WE projects; to develop a Data Sharing Platform that will serve data providers, developers and regulators.
WavEC will be responsible for the environmental monitoring of the WaveRoller technology testing in Peniche (FOAK project) and project dissemination.
