The DT Ocean project has produced free, open-source design tools for optimising ocean energy arrays. Design tools have a vital role to play in driving the innovation and cost reduction needed to create a commercially viable industry. By proposing new solutions, and optimising existing ones, such tools help find the best path forward for industries such as wave and tidal energy.
At the launch seminar on 12th October at the RenewableUK Marketplace Conference in Liverpool, the DT Ocean project will introduce its contribution to this area: an open-source design tool for optimising the design of ocean energy arrays. ITP staff will be attending to help demonstrate the new tools.
