Next Evolution in Materials and Models for Ocean energy

Project description

Making tidal energy more affordable

Harnessing power from flowing water is one of the oldest forms of energy generation. However, further technology advancements are needed to make this renewable energy source competitive with traditional energy sources relying on fossil fuels. The EU-funded NEMMO project aims to drive down costs by designing larger, lighter and more durable composite turbine blades. Researchers are working on ways to improve the hydrodynamic performance and active flow control of the turbine blade. They are also testing new composites and coatings that should increase resistance to fatigue, impact, cavitation erosion and biofouling. The ultimate aim is to reduce the levelised cost of energy for a 2-MW tidal turbine by 70 %, bringing it down to EUR 0.15/kWh.
