Objectives
  • Identification of the best optimised design for a commercially viable200MW tidal stream array
  • Assessing credible system level approaches to delivering performance and cost improvement
  • Identifying supply chain solutions applicable to generic tidal stream devices
Abstract

The Tidal Energy Converter (TEC) System demonstrator saw the ETI invest £3.2m in a project to take a whole system and through life analysis approach to deliver the best optimised design for a commercially viable 200MW tidal stream array.

It involved a broad range of the marine technology skill base and identified supply chain solutions applicable to generic tidal stream devices. Phase 1 of the project, launched in May 2012, was led by Atlantis Resources Corporation and project managed by Black & Veatch.

The project drew on the systems integration and technology skills of Lockheed Martin, as well as many leading technology providers in the marine industry. The results indicate that tidal energy could be comparable and cost competitive with offshore wind by 2020.

Key findings and deliverable reports from this project have been shared with the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult the technology innovation and research centre for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy to inform their ongoing work in the area of tidal energy.

Comparing Smart Scheme Effects for Congested Highways
A high level objective for many international governments and local operators is that highways should be managed in a way that is sustainable in terms of a Low Carbon Energy future. Recent initiatives such as the Strategic Transport Technology Plan and the policy and legal framework promoted by the European Commissions’ Intelligent Transport System (ITS) […]\nThe post Comparing Smart Scheme Effects for Congested Highways appeared first on CDRC.26/01/18

Spatial Modelling for Retail Analytics
This one-day course introduces participants to sophisticated spatial analysis and spatial modelling approaches that can be used to understand retail sector dynamics. We focus on the analysis of complex interactions between retail demand (consumers) and the retail supply side (retail stores). The tools that we introduce are applied widely by the commercial retail sector and […]\nThe post Spatial Modelling for Retail Analytics appeared first on CDRC.28/01/19
Spatial microsimulation modeling for residential energy demand of England in an uncertain future
High quality infrastructure is crucial to economic success and the sustainability of society. Infrastructures for services, such as transport, energy, and water supply, also have long lead times, and therefore require effective long-term planning. In this paper, we report on work undertaken as part of the UK Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium to construct long-term models […]\nThe post Spatial microsimulation modeling for residential energy demand of England in an uncertain future appeared first on CDRC.30/01/18
Introduction to GIS and Spatial Analysis for Retail Applications
This one-day course provides an introduction to applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial analysis in understanding retail sector dynamics. We focus on the visualisation and analysis of data related to retail supply (e.g. store catchments) and demand (including geodemographics) at national, regional and local scales. We consider commercial and public sector applications of […]\nThe post Introduction to GIS and Spatial Analysis for Retail Applications appeared first on CDRC.15/10/18
