On 31 January 2024, IMPACT will host a joint webinar with fellow wave energy project VALID, entitled Harnessing Ocean Power: Progressing with WEC Technology through Rig Testing.
Waves are a promising source of reliable, renewable energy. Wave energy converters (WECs) can convert the energy associated with waves into mechanical or kinetic energy that we can use. However, this technology is not yet widely employed. IMPACT and VALID answered the same Horizon 2020 call topic to develop new test rigs for accelerating this technology’s development.
Harnessing Ocean Power: Progressing with WEC Technology through Rig Testing will present a case study from each project, to demonstrate how the technology being developed by IMPACT and VALID can contribute to advancing wave energy deployment.
When: 14:00 – 15:30 CET, 31 January 2024
This is not the first time IMPACT and VALID have worked together. In October 2022, the two projects collaborated on a side event at global ocean energy conference, ICOE-OEE.
Accelerating Wave Energy Rollout in Europe
The joint webinar is being supported by Trust-IT Services through the EU’s Horizon Booster Results programme. As part of this work, Trust-IT Services has also produced a joint flyer and a joint video on the two projects.
