An international collaboration between the University of Edinburgh and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), USA, has been developing and testing an instrument to improve the measurement of currents in fast-flowing ocean environments. The instrument promises to improve how we understand the effects of the marine environment on the performance of Ocean Renewable Energy (ORE) technologies and operations.
Dr Encarni Medina-Lopez is Chancellor’s Fellow in Data Driven Innovation in the School’s Research Institute for Infrastructure and Environment, focusing on a number of marine energy research themes including how human actions affect coastal areas. She took part in the following interview to mark International Women in Engineering Day 2019.
Professor Peter Fraenkel MBE, Visiting Professor at University of Edinburgh, is the third recipient of the Scottish Government's Saltire Prize Medal. The award is for his outstanding contribution to the development of tidal energy over three decades.
