Video: WES clarifies control systems innovation call
Wave Energy Scotland (WES) has released a video recording of the recently held webinar dedicated to the control systems innovation call.
The interactive webinar, held on April 12, 2017, featured Tim Hurst, Managing Director of WES, and Jonathan Hodges, Senior Innovation Engineer at WES, who provided detailed explanations of WES’ fourth innovation call, and the workings of organization in general.
The call, focused on control systems suitable for use with a variety of wave energy converters, was launched on April 5, 2017, and is open for applications until June 12, 2017.
WES said the advanced control systems have the potential to play a vital role in the realization of cost-effective wave energy generation technology as they should increase the energy capture capacity of wave device, detect and protect it from storms, whilst also reducing costs.
WES is a subsidiary of Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) established by the Scottish government to advance the wave energy sector in Scotland.
