Australian Wave Energy Atlas - Garden Island Case Study Numerical Wave Modelling


CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere conducted an intensive field program between Dec 2014 and Feb 2016 to assess the physical wave-current-morphodynamic response of wave energy extraction at Carnegie Clean Energy's Perth Wave Energy Project, located near Garden Island near Perth. For this study, a total of five oceanographic instrument deployments were un... more

The numerical model used is the Sandia National Laboraties SWaN model (SNL-SWAN v1.0, http://snl-waterpower.github.io/SNL-SWAN/) was used to estimate the coastal wave field with and without Wave Energy Converters (WECs) during five in situ instrument deployments.

About this Project

ARENA: Australian wave energy atlas


This project is developing an online national wave energy atlas that makes it easier to assess the feasibility of wave power projects. The Australian wave energy atlas will build on earlier CSIRO assessments of Australia’s wave energy resources. The project will be carried out in stages and is scheduled for completion in 2017. Australia has some ... more

Garden Island oceanographic case study


A network of 5 AWAC instruments were deployed adjacent to an array of CETO5 wave energy converters (WEC) to measure the effects of WEC deployment on the surrounding wind-wave field.
