Doing your intership/Master Thesis at CorPower Ocean you will be part of a world class team, determined to make big impact. We are on a mission to bring reliable and competitive wave energy to the world. We offer a high degree of autonomy and flexibility, combined with great personal responsibility. CorPower Ocean is a global leader in wave energy, with a technology that has shown game-changing performance. Your work will contribute to the global transition to renewable energy by unlocking one of the largest untapped sources of clean energy on earth.
In order to evaluate potential sites for wave energy production around the world, CorPower performs various analyses of data related to such sites. The location must satisfy a set of specific criteria to be qualified for economically viable deployment of wave energy technology.
This project is focused on the analysis of large met-ocean datasets used for such site evaluations. The wave and wind datasets of interest include both in-situ and satellite measurements, as well as model data.
Another aspect of the project is to study the benefits of adding wave energy into a country's/region's energy mix in terms of stability of the electric system, price of electricity and total system cost,
