Multi-model investigation of tidal energy converter reliability
MONITOR proposes an investigation into tidal energy converter (TEC) reliability, using a range of methods. The Atlantic Area is the world-leading region for tidal energy, so this project is well-placed to support its Blue Growth and renewable energy targets. The main outputs will be tools to enable TEC developers to improve device reliability. This is a crucial challenge for the sector, and overcoming it will reduce risk, thus demonstrating TEC feasibility to investors and public bodies.
