22/03/2017 - EWTEC 2017 Conference

CIEMAT participated in the Twelfth European  Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC 2017) celebrated in Cork (Ireland) between 27th August and 1st September 2017. It reuned more than 500 experts in the field of renewable energy who presented more than 450 research papers. This congress is one of the most important in the field of marine energy and covers multidisciplinary aspects of wave energy and marine currents ranging from hydrodynamic studies of devices to their impact on the quality of the electricity network through socio-economic analysis of these renewable energies. This unit presented two works, “Study of the impact of wave energy generation in the frequency of an island electric grid” by Marcos Blanco and "Reduction of power oscillations combining energy storage with prediction techniques" by Marcos Lafoz.
