Illustration (Adobe Illustrator) about oceans energy and recent EU-funded projects that are at the forefront of developing new methods and technologies to harness energy from the oceans :
FloTec is a tidal technology that offers greater energy capture and reduces the cost of floating tidal energy to less than EUR 200 00 per MWh.
MegaRoller has been building a full-size PTO (power take-off) system – a device taking power from its source (waves) and transmitting it to an application (the electricity grid).
TAOIDE is developing a fully-integrated generator to grid energy delivery system with high reliability and availability, suitable for use in multiple architectures of marine renewable energy systems.
REALTIDE collects data to identify the main failure causes of tidal turbines at sea and to provide a step change in the design of key components, namely the blades and power take-off systems, adapting them more accurately to the complex environmental tidal conditions.
Waveboost project designed and developed an advanced power take off (PTO) system allowing wave energy converters (WECs) to operate safer and more reliably in harsh ocean conditions while increasing annual electricity production.
For the Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS). It is the European Commission’s primary source of results from the projects funded by the EU’s framework programmes for research and innovation. The illustration will be the cover of the magazine of Cordis of september 2020 and a postcard published in European Commission’s 27 languages.
