WECwakes

Large scale experiments on Wave Energy Converter (WEC) farms to study the near-field effects between the converters and the far-field effects on other users in the coastal area.

Wave Energy Converters (WECs) extract energy from ocean waves and have the potential to produce a significant contribution of electricity from renewable sources.

Person

Dr Tim Stallard

Dr Stallard joined the University of Manchester in October 2006 after two years of interdisciplinary research concerning the performance and economics of marine energy converters. This followed completion of a DPhil in the Ocean Engineering Dynamics group at Oxford University where he developed an interest in both vortex- and wave-induced forces. His present research concerns offshore renewables including tidal stream, wave energy and offshore wind.
