Despite the fact that the wave energy is a large resource of energy, the wave energy sector has not still delivered a cost competitive solution. The structural design of wave energy device (SDWED) project aims at accelerating the development of the sector. The project gathers international research communities around the development of design tools and a common design basis for wave energy devices in order to make these devices more competitive. The prospect of an overall wave-to-wire model has the potential of lowering the cost of energy and increasing the reliability of wave energy devices.
