CorPower Ocean

CorPower Ocean brings a new class of high efficiency Wave Energy Converters (WECs) enabling robust and cost-effective harvesting of electricity from ocean waves. The design principle is inspired by the pumping principles of the human heart and offers five times more energy per ton of device compared to previously known technologies, allowing a large amount of energy to be harvested using a small and low-cost device. The CorPower WEC’s unique ability to become transparent to incoming waves provides survivability for the WEC in storm conditions. CorPower’s is headquartered in Sweden, with offices in Portugal, Norway and Scotland. The company has received broad backing across Europe, with funders including EIT InnoEnergy, the European Commission, the Swedish Energy Agency, AICEP Global(Norte2020), Wave Energy Scotland, Midroc New Technology, ALMI Invest Greentech, SEB Greentech VC and additional private investors.

Edinburgh University Policy and Innovation Research Group

The Policy and Innovation Research Group is part of the Institute for Energy Systems (IES) which is one of the six research institutes within the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. The University of Edinburgh is one of the largest and most successful universities in the UK with an international reputation as a centre of academic excellence. The University has been at the forefront of renewable and marine energy conversion research for 45 years. The group combines expertise on technologies, energy system organisations and institutions, and the wider policy and regulatory context for energy. It applies a range of quantitative and qualitative research tools and methods including innovation systems, energy system modelling and scenarios, and transitions management. This leads to preparation of strategy and investment roadmaps for organisations' funding, public and private investment and government departments.

EMEC (European Marine Energy Centre)

Established in 2003, the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) Ltd is the world’s first and leading facility for demonstrating and testing wave and tidal energy converters – technologies that generate electricity by harnessing the power of waves and tidal streams – in the sea. It offer purpose-built, open-sea testing facilities for prototype technologies. It operatea two grid-connected, accredited test sites – the Fall of Warness tidal test site and Billia Croo wave test site – where larger prototypes are put through their paces, as well as two scale test sites where smaller scale devices, or those at an earlier stage in their development, can gain real sea experience in less challenging conditions. Attracting developers from around the globe, EMEC’s facilities help to prove what is achievable in some of the harshest marine environments while in close proximity to sheltered waters and harbours.

Test Centre for Support Structures (TTH) of the Leibniz University of Hanover

The Test Center Support Structures (TTH) in Hanover offers a unique infrastructure for testing all types of support structures (towers and foundations) on a scale of 1:10 and larger. The foundation test pit and the span can be used to investigate fatigue and extreme load behavior under multi-axial loading. The test center also offers four specially equipped laboratories to carry out scientific investigations. The “structural health monitoring laboratory”, the “soil mechanics laboratory”, the “concrete laboratory” and the “fiber composite laboratory” complete the infrastructure of the test center.
