Project Description / Objectives:

The MOREDATAS project will develop advanced techniques specifically (i) to build the budget of uncertainties from measurements to resource characterisation, (ii) for turbulence analysis using data from new generation acoustic Doppler profilers and (iii) for wave spectral analysis with an ambient current.

This project addresses the needs for a better understanding and characterisation of unquantified or unknown aspects of the wave and tidal energy resources. These needs arise from the increasing demand by the industry to obtain results of estimated Annual Energy Production (AEP) with a much better declaration of the associated uncertainties required to improve the investability of the wave and tidal energy projects and provide a level of comfort for commercial lenders and investors. By reducing the investment risk for ocean energy projects the investment income will increase and thus promote the development of the industry.
