Offshore Renewable Energy

Offshore Renewable Energy Research Theme

An international collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), USA, has been developing and testing an instrument to improve the measurement of currents in fast-flowing ocean environments. The instrument promises to improve how we understand the effects of the marine environment on the performance of Ocean Renewable Energy (ORE) technologies and operations.

REF eligible staff are invited to declare any circumstances that have impacted on their ability to research productively (e.g. extended periods of family-related leave, secondments or career breaks) during the REF 2021 assessment period.

Wave energy company Mocean Energy has selected technology developed by the School's Professor Markus Mueller to power its new prototype. Mocean won £3.3million in funding from Scottish Government-funded Wave Energy Scotland (WES) earlier this year, to develop and build a half-scale prototype of its Blue Horizon wave machine. The prototype will be deployed in real sea conditions off Orkney next year.

The School's C-GEN technology will be deployed in a half-scale prototype wave energy generator off the coast of Orkney next year
