Abstract

This paper attempts to assess if extracting energy from a combined offshore, wind, wave and tidal resource can reduce the difficulties envisaged from integrating a large volume of a single intermittent source into the current electricity system in Ireland. The paper concludes that the use of wave power and tidal power, in combination with wind power, has significant merit.
