The Marine Renewable Energy Research Group (MRERG) at National University of Ireland, Galway, (NUI Galway) hosts an extensive suite of numerical modelling, experimental testing and real-world monitoring facilities for use in ocean energy research. Wave and tidal energy are the primary focus of the authors’ research efforts with topics such as resource quantification, energy extraction, wave-structure interaction and hydro-environmental impact assessment currently under investigation.
