Cover Story (view full-size image): The increasing global energy demand and the target of reducing anthropogenic emissions affecting the climate are leading to an era of renewable energy. Countries with long coastlines exposed to open sea such as Norway have the potential to harvest wave energy in order to partially satisfy domestic and European energy demands. Our study aims to shed new light on the spatiotemporal assessment of wave energy flux in the Nordic Seas, individually for wind-sea and swell conditions, using a 59-year hindcast (NORA10). The highest wave energy flux is evidenced in winter, in the Norwegian Sea, where swell conditions are dominant. During calm wind conditions, reduced wind power production could be compensated by wave power from swell originating from the Atlantic Ocean. View this paper.
