CAG - Chair's Advisory Group


IEC TC 114 was established in order to prepare international standards for marine energy conversion systems. The primary focus being on the conversion of wave, tidal and other water current energy into electrical energy, although other conversion methods, systems and products remain included. Tidal barrage and dam installations, as covered by TC 4, are explicitly excluded.

The activities covered by TC 114 include:

• system definition;

• performance measurement of wave, tidal and water current energy converters;

• resource characterization and assessment;

• design and safety requirements;

• power quality;

• manufacturing and factory testing; and

• evaluation and mitigation of environmental impacts.


1.2.1 The advisory group provides a forum for the discussion of problems of mutual interest between project team leaders, working group leaders and the IEC officers. 

1.2.2 The advisory group may provide assistance to the Chair to advise on coordination with other TCs, identify possible conflicts or overlaps with other TCs and international organizations and provide recommendations for future cooperation. 

1.2.3 The advisory group may be required to perform specific tasks of an advisory nature allocated to this group by the plenary committee meeting.

1.2.4 The advisory group need to consider relevant conformity assessment activities developed under the Conformity Assessment Board.
