On Tuesday the 4th of April, Birgitte Rugaard Furevik held a presentation for the Bergen Energy Lab during a lunch seminar. She is a Senior Scientist at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, and her work areas include ocean wave modeling and forecasting. Birgitte gave a presentation on renewable wave energy in the North Sea.

Due to the high potential of wave energy and the goal to raise the share of renewable energy supply in the EU up till 20% in 2020, the development of wave energy is accelerated.

Observing and simulating the wave conditions in Sulafjord for the E39 project of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration: Birgitte Rugaard Furevik, Ole Johan Aarnes, Lasse Lønseth, Hálfdán Ágústsson, Øyvind Byrkjedal and Kjeller Vindteknikk: Presenter: Furevik
To date the research area holds one complete wave energy converter connected to a measuring station on shore via a sea cable, a Wave Rider™ buoy for wave measurements, 25 buoys for studies on environmental impact, and a surveillance tower.
Ocean Wave Energy Resource Wave power varies considerably in different parts of the world. Areas of the world with abundant wave power resource include the western coasts of Scotland, northern Canada, southern Africa, Australia, and the northwestern coast of the United States, particularly Alaska.
A different approach for estimating annual wave energy potential was used for the North Sea. The wave condition was calculated in several points, including significant wave height, zero-crossing wave period, and the direction of the waves.
