Report by Aalborg University, DTU Aqua (National Institute of Aquatic Resources), Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), Institute for Technological Research (IPT), Plymouth University, Queen's University Belfast, The French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (IFREMER), University College Cork, and University of Edinburgh. pp 85.

This document gives an overview of the existing testing facilities dedicated to wave energy converters (WECs). It first presents the different types of wave makers and wave tanks that are commonly used. It also contains a comparative description of the wave generating methods in terms of accordance with a target wave field. Moreover, a presentation and a quality assessment of absorption methods is carried out. Finally, it focuses on special modifications to operate in wave tanks to test marine energy devices in shallow water.
