Atlas of wave energy resources in Europe

European wave energy resources have not been well characterized. Detailed studieshave been undertaken in only a few Member States, and using differentmethodologies and data sources. Evaluation of the wave energy resource using ahigh-quality uniform dataset will be of great value for the wave energy communityand other ocean users. In particular, better wave statistics will help in the planningof wave energy utilization and the preliminary design of wave energy power plants.This project aimed to produce a comprehensive atlas of the wave energy resourcesoff the coasts of EU Member States and Norway.
