|Publication Date:||1 June 2020|
|ICS Code (Hydraulic energy engineering):||27.140|
This part of IEC 62600 defines the terms relevant to marine energy. For the purposes of this document, sources of ocean and marine renewable energy are taken to include primarily devices that convert wave, tidal and other water current energy into electrical energy, although other conversion methods, systems and products are included.
Terms relating to conventional dam and tidal barrage, offshore wind, marine biomass, and salinity gradient energy conversion are not included in the scope of this document.
This document is intended to provide uniform terminology to facilitate communication between organizations and individuals in the marine energy industry and those who interact with them.
