SPOTLIGHT ON IRELAND


CENTRE FOR MARINE AND RENEWABLE ENERGY IRELAND (MAREI)


MaREI is a research, development and innovation Centre, supported by Science Foundation Ireland, that operates across the fields of marine and renewable energy. In addition to fundamental scientific research, the centre provides targeted research and expert consulting services to a wide range of companies, which has established the centre as a strategic research and development partner for both academic and industry partners worldwide.


STRENGTHS – SHARING KNOWLEDGE TESTING


MaREI’s strengths lie in the multi- and trans-disciplinary nature of its research teams, allowing it to combine insights across areas such as Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) Technologies, Materials and Structures, Observation and Operations, Coastal and Marine Systems, Bioenergy, Energy Policy and Modelling, and Energy Management. MaREI also offers world-class infrastructure and testing facilities, including the LIR National Ocean Test Facility, that allow the systematic identification and reduction of development risks through a structured ‘Technology Readiness Level’ (TRL) development cycle.


TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT EXPERTISE


MaREI’s technology development expertise covers the wave, tidal and offshore wind energy sectors, as well as complementary terrestrial applications such as onshore wind. Capabilities include aspects such as hydrodynamic and numerical modelling, power take-off and electrical control, and also extends to areas such as the design of mooring systems and array optimisation for the deployment of multiple devices.


Physical testing of prototype devices is facilitated through infrastructure available at Lir-National Ocean Test Facility, supported by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, and Limerick Docks tidal tow-testing facility.


MaREI FUNDAMENTAL UNDERSTANDING


Physical and hydrodynamic models are fundamental to the understanding of device behaviour and response in typical wave climates, and allow key parameters to be determined, including maximum device loading (dissipation, diffraction, radiation, large motions and structural interaction), and the calculation of power conversion capabilities, providing the basis for control and forecasting algorithms.


• 180 researchers across 6 academic institutions working with 46 industry partners


• Technology development expertise covering the wave, tidal and offshore wind energy sectors


• World-class MRE testing infrastructure including the Lir National Ocean Test Facility
