Site Studies Services
AW-Energy offers advisory services for its customers on wave energy. Our advisory services range from national energy strategy advice to identifying and studying single sites for WaveRoller installation potential.
When trying to find out the country’s total potential for wave energy as a part of the complete energy mix, AW-Energy can do a quick study of the whole shoreline. This way, the authorities can get a total view on the possibilities of their energy production and what wave energy could bring into the mix.
When there already is a desire to include wave energy into an area’s energy production, a site study can be used to find out the most suitable locations for WaveRoller projects. A quick study can be made first to find out in a short period of time how much electricity a WaveRoller farm could generate in a certain location or area. A more detailed site study is used to identify suitable locations for WaveRoller farms within a selected area.
Regardless of the geographical area of the study, we can always take all of the related variables into consideration, includin the wave capacity, the potential provided by the nation’s energy grid, population density, current electricity price in each area, land usage, other energy production, etc.
- Provides important decision-making material in a short period of time, enabling the project to advance in steps with no heavy up-front investment.
- Identifies possible risks and obstacles already at the start.
- The final report serves later funding purposes and brings credibility to the project.
- The country’s whole wave energy potential can be confirmed relative to the energy need.
