Abstract:
The possibilities for the conversion of wave energy to electricity along the Belgian coastline will be determined through: (i) selection of the most promising concepts for wave energy conversion (ii) adjustement of the selected concepts to the Belgian conditions (iii) determination of suitable sites (iv) investigation of the economical feasibility of the selected concepts at those sites.
