  • Wave / tidal resource characterisation.
  • Wave / tidal device development and testing.
  • Wave / tidal hydrodynamic modelling.
  • Grid integration, PTO & control.
  • Station keeping, moorings and foundations.
  • Structural mechanics – materials, fatigue, loadings.
  • Environmental impact and appraisal.
  • Operations, maintenance and decommissioning.
  • Economical, social, legal and political aspects of ocean energy
