MaRVEN - Environmental Impacts of Noise, Vibrations and Electromagnetic Emissions from Marine Renewable Energy

Study Status: 
Completed
Princple Investigator Contact Information: 

Name: Matthijs Soede

Email: matthijs.soede@ec.europa.eu

Project Description: 

The European Union (EU) Commission, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation commissioned a study of the environmental effects of noise, vibrations and electromagnetic emissions from MREDs (Marine Renewable Energy, Vibration, Electromagnetic fields and Noise - MaRVEN). MaRVEN provides a review of the available literature related to environmental impacts of marine renewable energy devices and an in-depth analysis of studies on the environmental effects of noise, vibrations and electromagnetic emissions during installation and operation of wind, wave and tidal energy devices.

Funding Source: 

European Commission, Directorate General for Research and Innovation

Project Aims: 
  1. To review current norms and standards related to noise
  2. To perform on-site measurements and field ecperiments to fill priority knowledge gaps
  3. To outline a program for further research and development
Project Progress: 

Completed
