IEC TS 62600-301:2019 provides: · Methodologies that ensure consistency and accuracy in the determination of the theoretical river energy resource at sites that may be suitable for the installation of River Energy Converters (RECs); · Methodologies for producing a standard current speed distribution based on measured, historical, or numerical data, or a combination thereof, to be used in conjunction with an appropriate river energy power performance assessment; · Allowable data collection methods and/or modelling techniques; and · A framework for reporting results. The document explicitly excludes: · Technical or practical resource assessments; · Resource characterisation; · Power performance assessment of river energy converters; and · Environmental impact studies, assessments, or similar.
