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 can be used. 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 deployment.
"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.
