Abstract
Wave energy resource characterization efforts are critical for developing knowledge of the physical conditions experienced by wave energy converter (WEC) devices and arrays. Developers are lacking a consistent characterization of possible wave energy test sites, and therefore Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) has been tasked with developing a catalogue characterizing three high energy U.S. test sites. The initial results and framework for the catalogue are discussed in this paper. U.S. Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Wind and Water Power Program Sandia National Laboratories, National Nu...
