International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

TC 114

Marine energy - Wave, tidal and other water current converters


TC 114 Scope

TC 114

To prepare international standards for marine energy conversion systems. The primary focus will be on conversion of wave, tidal and other water current energy into electrical energy, although other conversion methods, systems and products are included. Tidal barrage and dam installations, as covered by TC 4, are excluded. The standards produced by TC 114 will address:

- system definition;

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

- resource assessment requirements, design and survivability;

- safety requirements;

- power quality;

- manufacturing and factory testing;

- evaluation and mitigation of environmental impacts.
