This facility provides free access to GIS data on European ocean energy facilities. View the wave power and tidal power data on an interactive map of Europe and search ocean energy sites and locations. Alternatively, download Esri compatible GIS files (Geodatabase or Shapefile). Datasets are also available via OGC compliant web feature service (WFS) or web map services (WMS). The metadata featured here can be downloaded as XML.

EMODnet Human Activities: Ocean Energy Projects


Resource Identification Information

Abstract
              The geodatabase on Ocean Energy projects in the EU was created in 2014 by AZTI-Tecnalia for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU. It is updated every year, and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains points representing Ocean Energy project sites in the following countries: Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands and United Kingdom. Where available, each point has the following attributes: site code (ID_1), project code (ID), name, location, country, sea basin, distance to coast (metres), resource type (wave, tidal, salinity gradient, wave/wind), starting year, ending year, lease status, technology (Based on www.aquaret.com/), device, device scale (Full scale, prototype, etc.), project scale (Commercial, Demonstrator Array, etc.), project status (operational, completed, etc.), project capacity (KW), promoter, position info (it indicates if the attribute value is original from the source or has been estimated or calcultated the polygon centroid).

Lineage
Lineage statement
                    Data were retrieved from different sources. Validation and quality assurance remain up to primary data sources, while harmonization is carried out by AZTI-Tecnalia. The harmonisation process consisted of identifying a set of attributes common to all the different datasets, thus creating a single data model. To do so, it was necessary to define a homogenous set of variables for each attribute. Therefore, raw data attributes may use a different terminology, although the information contained remains basically the same. For further information on validation and quality assurance, it is suggested that primary data sources are contacted. Generally speaking, data are to be considered very reliable, because they come from sources officially in charge for their collection.
