15 wave energy projects under study and a concept of 30 small units

  • Post category:News

A prospecting work has carried out on all 76 inhabited islands of the archipelago and is building a “pipeline” of wave energy projects.

From this prospection emerged a selection of islands divided into two main categories:

  • 15 most consuming islands
  • about 30 islands with lower consumption. 

The design and sizing of projects vary according to the geographical location and size of the islands (population and electricity consumption). Therefore, the concepts will be different depending on the categories.

Are Uira is the structure behind these projects.

This analysis on Polynesia was possible thanks to the data disseminated in the Energy Balance of French Polynesia Edition 2020, the IJSPF and the Atlas of the waves of French Polynesia.
