Abstract

Ocean energy is one of the largest renewable resources available on the planet. The term ocean energy includes the surface and subsurface motion of the waves, named wave energy. Spain has a long coast and good wave energy resources that can significantly contribute to the Spanish renewable energy
mix. This work presents a description of wave energy and wave energy conversion principles, the state of the art of wave energy in Spain, including ongoing research activities and pilot projects, and lessons learned from other European countries several years ahead from Spain regarding wave energy development. The latter is described by including financial incentives and administrative procedures recommendations that can contribute to boost the sector in a country with both an emerging interest and good wave energy potential.
