Wave Energy Atlas of French Polynesia

  • Post category:News

In 2023, Meteolien and Météo-France created the wave energy atlas of French Polynesia through 30-year modelling.

Several indicators were studied: 

  • average significant heights,
  • average energy fluxes,
  • average energy periods
  • 10-year return levels.

5 territories were studied in particular: 

  • The Society Islands
  • The West Tuamotu
  • The East Tuamotu + the Gambier islands
  • The Marquesas Islands
  • The Austral Islands

A total of 24 maps were presented. 

The project was co-financed by ADEME and the Polynesian Directorate of Energy.
