Wave Energy Scotland (WES) has launched a new online library that offers over 100 documents stemming from its wave energy research and development program.

The library, launched on July 20, 2017, includes free-to-access information on wave energy research, knowledge capture and international collaborations.

It will be updated with additional reports and details of the projects coming under the WES umbrella, including international collaborations and historic research, WES said.

Elva Bannon, Senior Research Engineer that led the development of library, said: “It is the first time that outputs generated through the WES program are made available from a single source. It provides an opportunity and platform for us to showcase the wonderful work which we have supported over the past two and a half years.

“In sharing this information, we are encouraging collaboration and ensuring that the lessons learned from the technology development projects is used for the benefit of the wider wave energy sector.”

In just over two years, WES has worked with 150 separate organizations across more than 50 projects in a range of technology areas, committing in excess of £24 million funding in a range of technology areas, according to WES.

The library requires registration, and can be accessed at http://library.waveenergyscotland.co.uk/.

WES is a subsidiary of Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), established and fully funded by the Scottish government, in an effort to advance the development of wave energy sector in Scotland.
