The University of Edinburgh

Stand 1.329 - Dutch Marine Energy Centre

The University of Edinburgh (UEDIN) – delivers world-leading research in energy systems,
technology and policy in addition to having developed unique test facilities for wave and tidal
energy including FloWave a Combined Wave and Current Test Tank.
Our research includes: Wave-to-Wire time-domain modelling to simulate the hydrodynamic,
mechanical and electrical response of wave energy converter arrays; feasibility and optioneering assessment of power take-off (PTO) systems for both wave and tidal energy concepts;
techno-economics studies of concepts to enable system optimisation and develop a commercialisation plan for the technology; and development of tank testing for wave, tidal and floating
wave devices.
