Consulting Engineer Julia F. Chozas together with Aalborg University and Energinet.dk have released a freely available online spreadsheet to evaluate the Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) for wave energy projects.
The open-access tool calculates the LCOE based on the power production of a Wave Energy Converter (WEC) at several locations. Production data may derive from laboratory testing, numerical modelling or from sea trials.
The tool has been developed as a transparent and simple model that evaluates WEC’s economic feasibility in a range of locations, while scaling WEC’s features to the selected site.
