The list below compiles and provides access to external databases. While the respective scopes of each of the databases are varied, all convey information relevant to marine renewable energy. The list of databases is not exhaustive and will be updated as needed. If you have comments on incorrect or missing material, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Telesto||Current, Wave, Salinity Gradient, OTEC||United States of America||Telesto provides information and guidance for testing, measurement, and data analysis for marine energy research, development, and demonstration. It also features the Testing Facilities Database, a collection of device testing facilities, and the Sensor and Instrumentation Database, a catalogued collection of sensors and instruments used by the marine energy industry. Telesto is one of several Knowledge Hubs within the Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy (PRIMRE) system.|
|Tethys||Current, Wave, Salinity Gradient, OTEC||United States of America||Tethys is an online knowledge management system that provides access to information on the environmental effects of wind and marine renewable energy. Launched by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to support the U.S. Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office and Wind Energy Technologies Office, Tethys houses thousands of peer reviewed papers, technical reports, geospatial content, and other media and metadata. Tethys is one of several Knowledge Hubs within the Portal and Repository for Information on Marine Renewable Energy (PRIMRE) system.|
|UK Marine Energy Database (UKMED)||Current, Wave||United Kingdom||Renewable UK's Marine Energy Database (UKMED) is a growing map and database of wave and tidal sites in the UK. The interactive map enables users to view project details including technology type, ownership, and project status.|
|UKDMOS||United Kingdom||The United Kingdom Directory of Marine Observing Systems (UKDMOS), is a unique internet-based searchable database of marine monitoring conducted by UK organizations. Aiming to fulfill the basic requirement to know where, when and what is being monitored in the marine environment around the UK and provide information to help coordinate monitoring across different organizations, UKDMOS is a tool for searching monitoring programs and series based on information such as the parameters measured or the frequency of measurements taken. UKDMOS is managed and updated by the Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN).|
|Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network (WTKN)||Current, Wave||United Kingdom||The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult's Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network (WTKN) is an open access database that contains reports, datasets, and project data related to environmental impacts and consents, grid connections, health and safety, and more.|
