BDAE Press Release: Wave & Tidal Energy & TALOS Wave Energy Converter Lecture

Professor George Aggidis of Lancaster University will present the latest developments on harvesting wave energy. This talk will highlight and discuss the ongoing UK and international collaborative developments of various types of Wave and Tidal Energy Generating Systems, and how such machines are controlled and optimised for peak performance.

Then it will focus on the current Lancaster University research on the EPSRC funded research relating to the multi axis Wave Energy Converter System TALOS WEC, its international research collaborations and its next steps. This new research project will develop cutting-edge technologies that will advance efforts towards capturing the huge Renewable Power of the Oceans.

Martin Bates of BDAE said “It is great to see the government funding the research into this green energy source to push it closer to reality and that it is being done locally.”.

PROFESSOR GEORGE AGGIDIS is Professor and Head of Energy Engineering at Lancaster University. His career includes industrial and academic experience, in the UK and internationally. Published in excess of 150 papers and has 12 granted patent applications. He has a particular interest in tidal barrage systems.
