Wavepiston announces collaboration with Ørsted

Published by , Editor
Energy Global,

Wavepiston has started a collaboration with Ørsted to investigate the potential for co-location of offshore wind and wave energy in Denmark.

The collaboration will analyse the benefits of combining offshore wind and wave energy and show the potential of optimising the energy yield from the natural resources available in Danish waters.

A co-location of offshore wind and wave energy presents a multitude of benefits, including:

  • Increased energy production: Utilising both wind and wave resources can lead to higher overall energy output from the same area.
  • Enhanced grid stability: The combination of wind and wave energy can provide a more stable and reliable supply of electricity, reducing intermittency issues.
  • Cost efficiency: Sharing infrastructure such as transmission lines, offshore operations, and surveillance can significantly reduce operational costs.
  • Environmental benefits: Co-locating renewable energy technologies can minimise the environmental footprint compared to separate installations.
