Testing, Expertise for Marine Energy 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.
Northwest Offshore Wind Supply Chain Summit
Thank you for a successful event!
In preparation for potential OSW leases in 2024, the Pacific Ocean Energy Trust and Washington Maritime Blue teamed up to host an offshore wind supply chain event on November 16 at the Hilton in Vancouver, Washington. The Summit, which attracted over 200 attendees, provided insights into the state of the offshore wind sector and explored the opportunities for ports and supply chains to support the sector.
Thank you to all who attended, our speakers, and our partners/sponsors for making this event such a success!
Connecting Industry, Academia, Labs
The University Marine Energy Research Community (UMERC), 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:
