There is currently no standard method of describing the key characteristics and attributes of Ocean Energy technologies. Without such a standard, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to objectively analyse innovative technologies and compare competing technologies.
DTOceanPlus project is developing a novel framework for the standard representation of data formats for ocean energy systems. The so called Digital Representation aims at:
- Providing a common language and architecture for storing project information.
- Facilitating data and information exchange among different stakeholders.
- Enabling objective comparisons between various technologies.
- Enhancing the ability of sector stakeholders to work collaboratively.
