Compilation of Development Metrics Applicable to Wave Energy Converters (WECs): Current Status and Proposed Next Steps


The compilation summarised in this paper and its discussion aim to provide a practical reference source concerning metrics for WEC development, which is currently unavailable in the published literature in terms of broadness and condensed presentation. Such compilation includes multiple formulations from the wave energy sector and other relatable industries (e.g. wind energy) that are typically diluted among specialist literature, standards, guidelines and recommendations, scientific papers, and project reports. The paper is concluded with a reflection of any salient gaps that are not addressed by current metrics, in a context of accelerating the development of WEC technologies.
