DOE Awards $25Mn for Marine Energy R&D Projects (Funding)
US DOE Water Power Technologies Office
Date: 2019-01-09
U.S. DOE is reporting the selection of 12 projects that will share in $25 million in next-generation marine energy devices funding through the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Water Power Technologies Office. The selected innovative projects will reduce capital costs and accelerate the innovation cycle by testing new concepts. Marine energy includes ocean wave power, tidal, and river/ocean current devices that convert movement of water into electricity.

Selections were made across three topic areas, outlined below. The first two aim to address fundamental scientific and engineering challenges of generating power from dynamic, low-velocity and high-density waves and currents. The third topic area is targeted to provide better information to reduce the costs and time to permit projects that include Early Stage Device Design Research, Controls and Power Take Off Design Integration and Testing, and Dissemination of Environmental Data and Analyses to Facilitate the Marine Energy Regulatory Process.
