EVOLVE Project reveals positive role for wave energy in Europe’s future low carbon energy system

In a recent CorPower Ocean news post on the EVOLVE project, the technology developer (and EVOLVE partner) discuss with EVOLVE Technical Manager Dr Shona Pennock to how initial project findings indicate wave energy will positively impact Europe’s future low carbon energy system.

 As Dr Pennock explains, “In recent years there’s been lots of talk about the potential benefits of adding wave and tidal to the energy system, but there are limited quantifiable studies demonstrating the benefit of ocean energy,” said Shona, who also serves as a Research Associate in Marine Energy within Edinburgh University’s Policy & Innovation Group. “The EVOLVE project aims to address this by producing quantifiable results in terms of the costs and carbon savings associated with deploying ocean energy into future low-carbon energy mixes.
