12 small images showing simulated velocity deficit when tidal turbines are installed at different locations around alderney

The effect of tidal stream turbine arrays upon sediment dynamics has received little attention to date due to, on one hand, lack of installed arrays and on the other lack of high resolution bathymetric survey data. However, we are now at the stage where there are some serious plans for implementing arrays of size tens […]

 What is CCWeatherGen? The climate change weather file generator (CCWeatherGen) enables you to generate climate change weather files for the UK ready for use in building performance simulation programs. It uses the 2002 climate change scenario predictions provided by the UK Climate Impacts Programme (UKCIP) (1) and is listed as ‘UKCIP02 extra‘ on the UKCIP […]
