There are many wave and tidal devices under development but as yet very few are actually in revenue-earning production. However the engineering problems are gradually being solved and there is an appetite to invest in these renewable generation technologies for harsher environments. To some extent the wave and tidal generation industry is following in the wake of the wind industry, particularly learning from the growing experience of offshore wind farm deployment. Wave and Tidal Generation Devices combines the lessons from the wind industry to show wave and tidal engineers, students and researchers the main reliability and availability issues facing the growing ocean energy industry.
This is essential reading for wave and tidal engineers and researchers and advanced students of renewable energy. It will also be invaluable to design engineers and developers working with wave and tidal devices.
