Marine energy: Mediterranean, new ENEA models for hi-resolution waves and tides forecasts

Estimating sea energy production thanks to high resolution forecasts of waves and tides of the Mediterranean. ENEA has developed MITO, a model of water circulation forecasting temperature, salinity and speed of sea currents with a spatial detail ranging from 2 km to a few hundred meters as in the case of the straits of Gibraltar, the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus. As for waves, a forecasting system – Wawes - guaranteeing a resolution of up to 800 meters in marine and coastal areas with high energy potential was created. Both utilize the ENEA supercomputer "CRESCO6, performing 1.4 million billion operations per second.
