The Wind and Water Power Technologies Office within the US Department of Energy (DoE) will host an executive summit on marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) research and development.

Through this initiative, the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office (WWPTO), together with executive members from the US DoE, the national laboratories, and the MHK energy industry, intends to showcase DoE’s water power energy investments in the national laboratories and to identify activities ripe for technology transfer.

By participating in this summit, attendees will have an opportunity to hear firsthand about important innovations in the MHK research community, DoE’s Small Business Voucher program (Round 2), and DoE’s research and development priorities for ocean wave, tidal, current, and river energy.

WWPTO has selected subject matter experts from DoE, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to discuss DoE’s MHK initiatives associated with facilitating industry engagement with the national laboratories.

In particular, the summit will hold sessions that discuss cutting-edge department activities that accelerate the deployment of MHK technologies through improved performance, lowered costs, and reduced market barriers.

It will also feature a session where industry representatives will discuss how to fulfill industry-wide research priorities, maintain feedback loops throughout the research and development process, and how to engage with private sector partners.

The summit will be held at Washington DC on March 2, 2016.
