Lars Bergdahl from our research organisation Chalmers University of Technology has together with several others created the book “Handbook of Ocean Wave Energy”.

The editors of the book, Arthur Pecher and Jens Peter Kofoed (both from Aalborg University), describes  it like this:

”This Handbook for Ocean Wave Energy aims at providing a guide into the field of  ocean wave energy utilization. The handbook offers a concise yet comprehensive overview of the main aspects and disciplines involved in the development of wave energy converters (WECs). The idea for the book has been shaped by the development, research, and teaching that we have carried out at the Wave Energy Research Group at Aalborg University over the past decades. It is our belief and experience that it would be useful writing and compiling such a handbook in order to enhance the understanding of the sector for a wide variety of potential readers, from investors and developers to students and academics.”
