At this day we will introduce the economic and technical advantages in combining offshore wind and wave energy in the same structure and/or location. The synergies in combining both resources will be analysed through a techno-economic case study based in North Sea waters. We will understand how both resources complement each other, and the economic as well as technical advantages of this combination, also from a grid and energy systems’ perspective. This day will also cover the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of a wave energy project and public opinion and acceptability of wave energy.
