Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce this Special Issue on “Advances in Wave Energy Harvesting”!

We look forward to receiving your contribution on the state of the art and perspectives on the Wave Energy fields and all the related topics, such as modeling, experiments, hydrodynamics, control, moorings, array deployment, PTO, advanced materials, and economics.

The aim of the Session is to give insight into what is going on in the field; therefore, the Session is open to review papers on Wave Energy technology, markets, mathematical modeling, free software, and tools.

Novel wave energy conversion concepts, experimental setups, and hardware-in-the-loop techniques are very welcome.
