WES launches fourth call
Funding available for complete control systems for wave energy converters
Wave Energy Scotland (WES) has issued its fourth funding call for complete control systems suitable for use with wave energy converters.
The call, which is for the first of three stages in the control systems programme, is for feasibility study proposals.
WES said it can offer up to £47,000 per project up to three-month duration, with applicants free to contribute further funds if desired.
Applications must be submitted by midday on 12 June.
“Advanced control systems have the potential to play a vital role in the delivery of cost-effective wave energy generation technology,” WES said.
“A control system for a wave energy converter should increase its energy capture capacity, detect and protect it from storms, whilst also reducing costs.”
