Abstract
The study enhances the coastal resource knowledge and discusses opportunities for wave energy in the<br/>Aegean Sea. A fine-resolution numerical wave model is utilised to provide results for the Greek coastal<br/>regions. The model ran for 35 years (1980e2014) estimating wave characteristics, and quantifying the<br/>wave energy potential in coastal areas. The results deliver the energy potential, variability, and site<br/>characterisation for the Aegean Sea.<br/>The dataset is coupled with wave energy converters power matrices to provide for the first time a<br/>long-term analysis of expected power production. Performance of devices is highly dependent on<br/>ma...
