Open Sea Operating Experience to Reduce Wave Energy Cost (OPERA)

Start date: 01 Feb 2016, End date: 31 Jul 2019,

Europe is endowed with abundant wave energy which could cover some 10% of its electricity needs with a clean, predictable and job-creating resource, which EU companies are at the forefront exploiting with little dependence on foreign suppliers.There remain important technical challenges to bring down costs to within investors’ reach, as a top priority open-sea operating experience must be analyse ...

The greater use of polymer matrix composite materials would be highly desirable. Their low weight, along with their inherent resistance to corrosion and fatigue, enables more fuel efficient and sustainable transport structures. However, for many applications, the biggest factor currently preventing the more widespread use of light high-performance polymer matrix composites is their poor fire perfo ...
