Wave Modelling for Wave Hub (WM4WH)

Plarmis Wave Energy Generator

This project is funded by SWDA as part of PRIMaRE project. The project is to provide characterization of the wave resources at the Wave Hub site, off the north coast of Cornwell, and the surrounding waters. The study also includes the predictions of wave climate under different IPCC greenhouse gas emission scenarios (B2, A1B and A2) for next 60 years, as well as the impact on the wave power generation.

My Role: CI

  1. To supervise the wave modelling activities
  2. To help analyse the results
