Renewable Energies Offshore includes the papers presented in the 1st International Conference on Renewable Energies Offshore (RENEW2014), held in Lisbon, 24-26 November 2014. The conference is a consequence of the importance of the offshore renewable energies worldwide and an opportunity to contribute to the exchange of information on the developments and experience obtained in concept development, design and operation of these devices. The scope of the Conference was broad, covering all aspects of the renewable energies offshore such as resource assessment for wind, wave and tidal energies; design and dynamic behaviour of wind, wave and tidal converters and platforms, ocean energy devices; multiuse platforms; PTO design; grid connection; economic assessment; installation and maintenance planning. Renewable Energies Offshore has as main target academics and professionals working in the related areas of renewable energies.

The waves that animate the surface of the oceans represent a deposit of renewable energy that for the most part is still unexploited today. This is not for lack of effort, as for more than two hundred years inventors, researchers and engineers have struggled to develop processes and systems to recover the energy of the waves. While all of these efforts have failed to converge towards a satisfactory technological solution, the result is a rich scientific and technical literature as well as extensive and varied feedback from experience. For the uninitiated, this abundance is an obstacle. In order to facilitate familiarization with the subject, we propose in this work a summary of the state of knowledge on the potential of wave energy as well as on the processes and technologies of its recovery (wave energy converters). In particular, we focus on the problem of positioning wave energy in the electricity market, the development of wave energy conversion technologies from a historical perspective, and finally the energy performance of the devices. This work is aimed at students, researchers, developers, industry professionals and decision makers who wish to acquire a global perspective and the necessary tools to understand the field. Reviews the state of knowledge and developments on wave energy recovery Presents the history of wave energy recovery Classifies the various systems for recovering this type of energy

Existing coastal management and defense approaches are not well suited to meet the challenges of climate change and related uncertanities. Professionals in this field need a more dynamic, systematic and multidisciplinary approach. Written by an international group of experts, Coastal Risk Management in a Changing Climate provides innovative, multidisciplinary best practices for mitigating the effects of climate change on coastal structures. Based on the Theseus program, the book includes eight study sites across Europe, with specific attention to the most vulnerable coastal environments such as deltas, estuaries and wetlands, where many large cities and industrial areas are located. Integrated risk assessment tools for considering the effects of climate change and related uncertainties Presents latest insights on coastal engineering defenses Provides integrated guidelines for setting up optimal mitigation measures Provides directly applicable tools for the design of mitigation measures Highlights socio-economic perspectives in coastal mitigation

Seit Beginn des Jahres 2005 müssen alle kapitalmarktorientierten Unternehmen ihre Konzernabschlüsse nach International Financial Reporting Standards erstellen. Für die großen und mittelständischen Unternehmen wird es zunehmend wichtiger die Vorteile der IFRS zu nutzen, um ihre Verhandlungsposition gegenüber Banken und anderen Kapitalgebern zu stärken. Das hat zur Folge, dass auch die Berater und Prüfer ab diesem Zeitpunkt die Vorschriften beherrschen müssen, wenn sie weiter wettbewerbsfähig bleiben wollen. Denn der Wechsel von HGB zu IFRS erweist sich als schwierig und aufwendig. Deutsche hochkarätige Herausgeber haben das weltweit anerkannte amerikanische Original-Standardwerk der Autoren Barry J. Epstein und Eva Jermakowicz überarbeitet und den deutschen Verhältnissen angepasst. Jedes Kapitel enthält eine Übersicht zum Diskussionstand der öffentlichen Meinung bei den einzelnen Regelungen. Zahlreiche Beispiele und Auszüge aus Geschäftsberichten stellen den Praxisbezug her. Neben den Aktualisierungen der IAS/IFRS-Standards enthält der Kommentar Erläuterungen zu den Bilanzierungsvorschriften von Industriebranchen und Banken. Eine überarbeitete Checkliste zu den Publizitätsvorschriften sowie eine Synopse US GAAP und IFRS runden den Kommentar ab.
