Marine renewable energy is still an emerging technology. As such, there is still a lack of mature standards and guidance for the development and testing of these devices. This report aims to summarise relevant published guidance and standards, and highlight any gaps or areas for further development: covering wave, tidal and offshore energy technologies for the full range of technology readiness levels.Recommendations are given on which documents addresses particular aspects of testing.This has been split into two parts:
1.By device type: wave energy converters; tidal energy converters; offshore wind turbines; and cross-cutting technologies.
2.By facility type: test tanks (flumes, towing-tanks, & basins); wind tunnels; field test sites (sheltered & exposed sites); and component test facilities.
