  • Capex numbers are in $/kW, Opex numbers in $/kW-yr. Cost Estimates provided herein are based on concept design and basic engineering data and have high levels of uncertainties embedded. This reference economic scenario was done for a very large device version of the OE Buoy technology, which is not presently on Ocean Energy's technology development pathway but will be considered in future business plan development. The DOE reference site condition is considered a low power-density site, compared with many of the planned initial deployment locations for the OE Buoy. Many of the sites considered for the initial commercial deployment ofmore » the OE buoy feature much higher wave power densities and shorter period waves. Both of these characteristics will improve the OE buoy's commercial viability.« less

  • This is the LCOE analysis spreadsheet and content model for the heaving point absorber buoy developed for controls purposes. The cost assessment was done on a wave-farm of 100-units.
  • Spreadsheet which provides estimates of reductions in Levelized Cost of Energy for a surge-mode wave energy converter (WEC). This is made available via adoption of the advanced control strategies developed during this research effort.
  • Project resultant LCOE model after implementation of MPC controller. Contains AEP, CBS, model documentation, and LCOE content model. This is meant for comparison with this project's baseline LCOE model.
