R&D Nester presents a methodology to evaluate the wave energy potential, developed in BigDataOcean project


R&D Nester presented a scientific paper related to the work that has been being developed under the scope of the BigDataOcean project, from which R&D Nester is a consortium member. The presented paper describes a methodology to evaluate the potential of wave energy and to verify the effect that the resource variability might have in the production of electric power. This methodology can be used through the utilization of the BigDataOcean platform. This project is financed by the European Commission through H2020 and has a total of 10 European partners, allowing users to execute services related to the maritime landscape including services related to wave energy assessment studies. All information related to BigDataOcean can be accessed in the project webpage at Additionally, R&D Nester team can also provide further information on what services are already available or envisaged to be included in the platform.

This paper was presented at the SEST - International Conference on Smart Energy Systems, which main focus was on smart grids and intelligent power systems. The conference, organized by the University of Seville and sponsored by Endesa and IEEE, occurred between the 10th and 12th of September in Seville and gathered multiple experts in intelligent power systems and smart grids, from different sectors including universities, research centres, industry and national and international authorities. Six plenary sessions have taken place, focusing in hot topics in power systems such as: smart technologies for massive integration of renewable energy, resiliency, energy storage and grid codes. Additionally, it also took place a panel session under the scope of the European project Integrid and a technical session related to two different research projects leaded by Endesa, complementing a total of 22 sessions for presenting scientific papers and results.
