This paper explores the variability of wave power in space and time using a 42-year high-resolution hindcast wave model from the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service for the North-West European shelf. We calculate the wave energy flux using significant wave height and wave energy period. To improve wave power assessment, we use knowledge about mean wavelengths and bathymetry, which is necessary given the nature of the intermediate and shallow waters in the region. The results provide monthly, seasonal, and inter-annual estimates of wave power variability based on 122,728 modeled wave measurements. The study advances the understanding of wave energy resources within
the domain.
