Wave Energy Potential Assessment for Riva and Foça, Turkey

Humankind has been looking for alternative energy supply options. This search has always been a big challenge. Renewable energy sources blossom the most possibly nature-harmonized options with no harmful propagation or emissions. Turkey, as a developing country and a highly experienced candidate to European Union membership, determines relevant energy policies by assessing domestic energy potentials. However, no official target for energy utilization from the seas is officially set so far. Wave energy can be one of the alternatives that can contribute to the energy mix of Turkey. This contribution would also positively affect the fossil fuel import rates of the country while the wave energy conversion technologies mature and penetrate the energy markets. With this in mind, wave energy potentials have been calculated for two locations, Riva and Foça; based on the data measured and obtained from the Office of Navigation, Hydrography and Oceanography of Turkish Navy. Comparatively low wave energy level results are obtained, mainly caused by the measurement sites are not on the shores of open sea or oceans, but inner seas. These results would hopefully help the respective engineers to reach the most suitable designs for these wave characteristics.
