The goal of the Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) sector is the delivery of power from offshore sites to the national grid. Achieving this goal depends on being able to undertake advanced model testing at earlier stages of development as more detailed output data will reduce risks and costs before moving to open sea test sites. The Open Ocean Emulator (OOE) will provide the capability to test next generation MRE systems for integration to the national grid at the LIR National Ocean Test Facility. It will augment and integrate existing facilities in the Beaufort Building and expertise within MaREI.
