WEC.0 is a project co-funded through the Ocean Energy ERA-NET by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, Scottish Enterprise and the Swedish Energy Agency.

The overarching aim of the WEC.0 project is to significantly improve wave energy converters (WECs) and the WEC development process by focusing on fundamental, early-stage performance and cost analyses. Device performance will be addressed through the development of an innovative hydrodynamic analysis method that examines the flux of energy from waves to the moving body. Costs will be addressed through the development of advanced operational simulations and the evaluation of metrics that can be measured at early-stages of development and their correlation to actual WEC costs.
