Dr Emmanouil is a postdoc researcher in the Greek Naval Academy during the last 2 years. Before, he worked for the National Meteorological Service as a senior weather forecaster for 10 years. He studied Physics at the University of Athens and his PhD thesis was about methods of improving the sea wave analysis and forecasting with numerical models. His research is focused on the meteorological part of renewable energy resources, concerning analysis and forecasting of the relevant meteorological fields as well as the wind and wave energy potential.
Wind-wave energy potential over the greek seas
The renewable energy resources are on the top of environmental issues. More specifically, wind and wave energy seems to be promising solutions for coastal and island countries, like Greece.
In this study, results of a project in which an integrated, high resolution system is developed for quantifying and monitoring the energy potential from wind and sea waves in the region of Eastern Mediterranean Sea, with special emphasis to the Greek area, are presented.
Main body of abstract
The models for the estimation of the energy potential, from wind and waves over sea areas, will be discussed. Moreover, atmospheric (WRF) and sea wave (WAM) numerical models used for the simulation of the environmental parameters that directly affect the wind-wave energy potential will be evaluated.
Then, high resolution maps for the coastal and offshore areas of Greece will be produced, in which sea wave and wind climatological characteristics as well as the relevant distribution of the wave energy potential will be monitoring.
