IREMARE (Marine Renewable Energie Resource Information) is a project funded by ADEME (Agency for the Environment and Energy Control, French Public Institution), convention n°1505C0027. It is dedicated to the production and dissemination of high level information about Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) resource. All the information comes from the processing of a database (Boudière et al. 2013) delivered by Ifremer (French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea). This database was identified by Dubranna et al. 2015 as the most appropriate for the production of MRE resource information at relevant time and spatial scales.
The information produced during IREMARE project covers the western coast of France (Atlantic, English Channel and North Sea) and can be used for national down to local scale studies. Show available information and access data
