Renewable energy resources are proper alternatives to mitigate the negative effects of fossil fuels on global warming and climate change. Marine renewable energies are massive resources to provide parts of the energy demand in areas adjacent to open water bodies. Among them, waves have the highest density and lowest visual and environmental impacts, however, the available resources are strongly affected by climate change, which alters the wind magnitude and pattern and consequently, the wave climate. In addition, development from full-scale testing to the commercialization of wave energy farms has been relatively slow, partly due to the financial risks connected to uncertainties in quantifying the wave energy resources. Moreover, installment of wave energy converters (WECs) will impact the sea state and coastal morphology in the areas where the wave energy exploitation is planned. Therefore, my research is focused on assessing the climate change impacts on wave energy resources and extreme events to ensure a reliable supply of energy and efficient use of it, as well as reducing the uncertainties in coastal hazards and investigating the combined impact of climate change and installment of WECs on sea state and coastal morphology to reduce the uncertainties in planning for a future sustainable development.
