EMODnet Human Activities: Ocean Energy Test Sites

The geodatabase on Ocean Energy test sites in the EU was created in 2016 by AZTI-Tecnalia for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU. It is updated every year, and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (www.emodnet-humanactivities.eu). The database contains polygons representing Ocean Energy test sites in the following countries: Denmark, France, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands and United Kingdom. Where available, each polygon has the following attributes: test site code, name, location, country, sea basin, distance to coast (metres), resource type (wave, tidal), starting year, ending year, lease status, site status, capacity (kW), depth (metres), area (square km), grid connection, number of berths, developer, position info (it indicates if the attribute value is original from the source or has been estimated).
