  • Coastal defence through wave farms 

    Abanades, J; Greaves, D; Iglesias, G (2014)
    The possibility of using wave farms for coastal defence warrants investigation because wave energy is poised to become a major renewable in many countries over the next decades. The fundamental question in this regard is ...
  • Coastal defence using wave farms: The role of farm-to-coast distance 

    Abanades, J; Greaves, D; Iglesias, G (2015)
    The location of a wave farm and, in particular, its distance to the coast is one of the key aspects in a wave energy project. The effects of the farm on the coast, which can be instrumental in mitigating storm-induced ...
  • Hybrid Wave and Offshore Wind Farms: a Comparative Case Study of Co-located Layouts 

    Astariz, S; Perez Collazo, C; Abanades, J; Iglesias, G (Nantes, France, 2016-09-01)
    Marine energy is one of the most promising alternatives to fossil fuels due to the enormous energy resource available. However, it is often considered uneconomical and difficult. Co-located offshore wind turbines and wave ...
  • Wave farm impact on beach modal state 

    Abanades, J; Greaves, D; Iglesias, G (2015-03-01)
    The extraction of wave energy by the Wave Energy Converters (WECs) forming a wave farm results in a milder wave climate in its lee, which can have an impact on coastal processes. The objective of this work is to determine ...
  • Wave farm impact on the beach profile: A case study 

    Abanades, J; Greaves, D; Iglesias, G (2014)
    If wave energy is to become a fully-fledged renewable, its environmental impacts must be fully understood. The objective of the present work is to examine the impact of a wave farm on the beach profile through a case ...
