    DescriptionA pioneering wave & tidal energy design tool - DTOcean - was officially launched on January 9 as an open source software package. The tool will assist project developers to design wave and tidal energy arrays by identifying optimal layouts, components and procedures. An active but growing user community is emerging around DTOcean, which industry and research communities are encouraged to join. The DTOcean software package is now available as a free download along with manuals and tutorials from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre website
