Marine Renewable - Energy Extraction and Hydro-environmental Aspects (MAREN)

Duration: 01.04.2009-31.03.2012 (36 months)

Coordination: Instituto Superior Técnico

Partners: Cardiff University, National University if Ireland, IFREMER, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidad de Cantabria

Funding Entity: ERDF - European Regional Development Fund

This project aims to provide high quality research results to support this innovative marine renewable energy industry, at a stage before major development decisions are taken. This multidisciplinary project will bring together experts from a wide range of backgrounds, adding diversity to the marine renewable energy sector and providing answers to fundamental questions regarding the provision of marine renewable energy. Collectively, the outcomes from the project activities, will provide information on the energy extraction potential of the Atlantic Area coastal waters and enable the prediction of both the impact of marine renewable energy devices on the environment (natural and human) and the impact of the environment on the preformances of these devices.
