Trends in Renewable Energies Offshore Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Renewable Energies Offshore (RENEW 2022, Lisbon, Portugal, 8–10 November 2022)

Edited By C. Guedes Soares Copyright 2023

    Renewable energy resources offshore are a growing contributor to the total energy production in a growing number of countries. As a result the interest in the topic is increasing. Trends in Renewable Energies Offshore includes the papers presented at the 5th International Conference on Renewable Energies Offshore (RENEW 2022, Lisbon, Portugal, 8-10 November 2022), and covers recent developments and experiences gained in concept development, design and operation of such devices. The scope of the contributions is broad, covering all aspects of renewable energies offshore activities, including:

    • Resource assessment

    • Tidal Energy

    • Wave Energy

    • Wind Energy • Solar Energy

    • Renewable Energy Devices

    • Multiuse Platforms

    • Maintenance planning • Materials and structural design

    Trends in Renewable Energies Offshore will be of interest to academics and professionals involved or interested in applications of renewable energy resources offshore.

    The ‘Proceedings in Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering’ series is dedicated to the publication of proceedings of peer-reviewed international conferences dealing with various aspects of ‘Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering’. The Series includes the proceedings of the following conferences: the International Maritime Association of the Mediterranean (IMAM) conferences, the Marine Structures (MARSTRUCT) conferences, the Renewable Energies Offshore (RENEW) conferences and the Maritime Technology (MARTECH) conferences. The ‘Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering’ series is also open to new conferences that cover topics on the sustainable exploration and exploitation of marine resources in various fields, such as maritime transport and ports, usage of the ocean including coastal areas, nautical activities, the exploration and exploitation of mineral resources, the protection of the marine environment and its resources, and risk analysis, safety and reliability. The aim of the series is to stimulate advanced education and training through the wide dissemination of the results of scientific research.
