Author / Editor: Ibon Galparsoro, Pedro Liria, Irati Legorburu, Pablo Ruiz-Minguela, Germán Pérez, Javier Marqués, Yago Torre-Enciso and Manuel González

Year: 2008

Content: This piece of work presents the methodology developed and based on a Suitability Index (II) to examine the adaptation of different locations to wave energy collection installations, the application of these installations on the Basque Country’s coastal shelf (between the coastline and a depth of 100 metres) and the results obtained in the estimate of energy potentials as well as the spatial distribution of these installations.

Fe de erratas (para las descargas anteriores a 02/02/2010): En la publicación inicial de este documento, debido a un error tipográfico, en el apartado conclusiones constaba que el potencial energético anual máximo accesible equivale a 2 TWh en profundidades próximas a 60 m. El valor real es 12 TWh.
