Final Report - CA-OE (Co-ordinated Action on Ocean Energy)

Project ID: 502701
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the CA-OE project. In the future, ocean energy can replace a significant part of the fossil fuel used today, when the principles for conversion have been successfully demonstrated and put into mass production. Presently, only a few different systems are being tested in precommercial scale and thus initial practical experience gained. Within the CA-OE project, this new knowledge and emerging research which are results from wave and tidal technologies were disseminated, promoted and shared. The partners agreed on definitions, standards in design and costing, and were open to present the performance results of the systems involved.

The report begins with some background on ocean energy and its possible uses and then presents the objectives of the project. This is followed by a more specific reference to the workshops organised and the topics discussed. Recommendations for further research and development follow. There is also a section concerning dissemination actions and plans.
