Center for Ocean Renewable Energy
center for Ocean renewable energy
The Center for Ocean Renewable Energy (CORE) provides multiple-scale research, technology development and evaluation, education, and outreach related to Ocean Renewable Energy systems.
CORE operates open-water test sites for tidal energy conversion in Great Bay Estuary, at the General Sullivan Bridge (Rt. 4/16 bridges) and at the Memorial Bridge (downtown Portsmouth, NH) and an offshore test site that has seen a number of deployments of wave energy converters and open ocean aquaculture systems over the past 20 years.
Data Sets & Publications
Data sets are available for select open-source configurations (e.g. reference models) for tidal energy converters and model offshore wind farm studies
Publications: peer-reviewed journal papers, conference papers and extended abstracts, theses.
This video shows the Tidal Energy Test Site of the UNH Center for Ocean Renewable Energy (UNH-CORE) on an ebb tide. The video was shot from aboard the R/V Gulf Challenger while performing vessel-mounted ADCP-transects to capture the spatial structure of the tidal flow (Fall 2010).
