Championing Ocean-Based Climate Solutions
Webinar – June 15
Offshore Wind and Upwelling
POET hosted a webinar on the effects of Offshore Wind (OSW) development on marine upwelling on Wednesday, June 15. With several draft call areas for OSW leasing recently identified along Oregon's coast, this is an especially timely topic. Special thanks to Dr. Kaus Raghukumar from Integral Consulting, Inc. for presenting this webinar. Watch the entire webinar, Q&A included, here.
Conference – September 13-15
Ocean Energy Week 2022: OREC and UMERC+METS
The Ocean Renewable Energy Conference, in conjunction with the University Marine Energy Research Community (UMERC) and the Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS), will combine for Ocean Energy Week 2022 in Portland, Oregon. The two conferences (UMERC+METS on Sept. 13-14 and OREC Sept. 14-15) will feature a wide array of information sessions and workshops, and bring together experts from across the country. It is not to be missed!
Support, Access for Developers
Serving as the Network Director for the Department of Energy's TEAMER program, POET connects marine energy developers with testing, expertise, and infrastructure from the nation's top research facilities. With this support, they can refine and validate their technologies—and ultimately bring them to market.
Connecting Industry and Academia
The University Marine Energy Research Community, coordinated by POET, seeks to strengthen the connections between members of industry, national laboratories, and universities to foster collaboration within the U.S. marine energy research community and amplify the impacts of foundational research.
We are focused on addressing the threat of climate change from a maritime perspective.
From our original mission to promote the responsible development of marine energy, we have expanded our mission:
Foster ocean-based climate solutions
The latest marine energy and offshore wind news and developments in the PNW and beyond.
Repository for research funded by OWET and others intended to reduce barriers to getting ocean energy projects into the water.
Oregon is uniquely poised to fill the utility-scale testing needs of the industry.
National and International research.
Wave, Tidal and Offshore Wind.
